Shark Days Livestream with Mote and OCEARCH

July 25, 2018

This program is a live, two-way interactive, online program focused on shark research at Mote Marine Laboratory. Participants will learn how and why Mote Marine Laboratory studies these animals. Participants will discuss shark research at Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium. Participants will discover why sharks are important to the ocean ecosystem and what humans can do to help conserve and protect sharks. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions with our Ocean Expert: Dr. Bob Hueter, Director of the Center for Shark Research at Mote Marine Laboratory and Chris Fischer, Founding Chairman/Expedition Leader from OCEARCH. Additional experts may be available to discuss the innovative technology and research available on the M/V OCEARCH.

Basic Recommended Technology

  • Computer or videoconference system running Zoom. Learn more about Zoom.
  • Large screen TV or projector. Since this is a a two-way video connection, we recommend using a large, bright TV screen over a projector when possible.
  • Webcam or video camcorder. Most laptops have a built in webcam. This can be difficult to position. A better choice is a removable webcam that can be position and focused independently.
  • High-speed internet connection. Wired ethernet preferred. Wireless not recommended.
  • USB Speaker/microphone. A high quality USB speaker/microphone with echo-cancellation will eliminate feedback.
