In 1993 a Fish Management Plan was put into force by the U.S. for its coastal waters and since then the American government has been monitoring results with annual investigations. Part of the plan also includes analyzing the species composition and frequency of shark populations.

In August Dr. Gaston D. Guex and I had the opportunity to do precisely such scientific volunteer work on board the Oregon II and thus to gain firsthand project experience.
