Inspired by the 1975 hit movie Jaws - filmed mostly in Massachusetts - our science café this month will be all about great white sharks! What was up with all those great whites around Cape Cod last summer?

Join Dr. Gregory Skomal, marine biologist and one of the nation's leading shark experts, who currently heads up the Massachusetts Shark Research Program (MSRP). Greg will talk about the changing ecological system that is driving the recent appearance of these sharks. He'll also explain how he tags and tracks great whites in the Atlantic, and what he has learned about these sharks since their tagging.
