Researchers Want To Hear About Shark Encounters While Fishing

Umass Amherst

Do you have a fish story about an encounter with a shark? 

  If so, researchers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst would like to hear it.

A survey has been posted for people to share their experiences with sharks while fishing in saltwater anywhere in North America.

The research is being headed by Grace Casselberry, a PhD student.  She spoke with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.

Paul Tuthill is WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief. He’s been covering news, everything from politics and government corruption to natural disasters and the arts, in western Massachusetts since 2007. Before joining WAMC, Paul was a reporter and anchor at WRKO in Boston. He was news director for more than a decade at WTAG in Worcester. Paul has won more than two dozen Associated Press Broadcast Awards. He won an Edward R. Murrow award for reporting on veterans’ healthcare for WAMC in 2011. Born and raised in western New York, Paul did his first radio reporting while he was a student at the University of Rochester.
