Nanofest - Sharks: Inside and out

All University, Public
Department of Marine Science / NZ Marine Studies Centre

A porbeagle shark washed up at Portobello for unknown reasons earlier this year. Join scientists as we dissect the 1.8m shark and look for clues as to what may have caused this.

Along the way, find out what makes a shark a shark, what species we normally find in the Otago Harbour, and how you can help gather data about sharks!

Please note, as this is a real shark dissection, viewer discretion is advised, as well as adult supervision for younger viewers. This event is suitable for ages 10+. All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a ticketed adult who stays for the duration of the event.
