The Global FinPrint core research team consists of some of the world’s top shark biologists and marine ecologists who provide the expertise and network of collaborators to ensure that the project meets its scientific and outreach goals. Collectively they lead a team of postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and citizen scientists.

Survey data and analysis will be made available through an open-access database created by Vulcan, Inc., a Paul G. Allen company, and will include information on species’ populations, habitats, and demographic trends.

Institutional partners include Florida International University (Miami, FL, US), Stony Brook University (Stony Brook, NY, US), Australian Institute of Marine Science (Queensland, AU), James Cook University (Townsville City, AU), and Curtin University (Perth, AU).

Without the help of our support staff and collaborating organizations around the world, tackling such a large project would not be possible.
