Dr. Philip Motta, the advisor for our organization, will be our first guest speaker for this semester. Dr. Motta will be giving a short presentation on his research with sharks, and you don't want to miss out!!

Please RSVP for our September meeting by voting in the poll above. We hope to provide snacks at the meeting (depending on our availability of funds) and need to know how many members plan on attending. Thank you! Smile

So I just realized that on the doodle poll, 9 people said they could make it and chose this time for the meeting...

That's not really true. The Doodle poll said 5:30pm - 6:30pm, not 5pm - 7pm. Also, the Doodle poll surveyed in general whether people could meet on certain days of the week, not whether they'd be available on specific dates...

No problem. thumbs up I do hope we have more than 6 members show up, though. We have over 40 members in our club. And, 6 out of 40 is kinda pathetic. Sad

For those of you who don't know Dr. Motta, he's amazing! Check out his website at: http://shell.cas.usf.edu/motta/

I think I know where his lab is located, because I walked by and saw a 4 foot mako shark lying on a table. It was kind of freaky to see something like that in a totally unexpected place.

Super cool! Wish the Mako had been alive and swimming, though. Sad Dr. Motta's lab and office are in the Science Center (SCA), and he keeps his live sharks at Mote Aquarium. He used to keep his sharks and rays on either the first floor or basement (can't remember) of SCA, but then they moved them back to Mote for convenience. They were having to truck in saltwater pumped from the ocean to USF, and it was too much work.

Glad you can make it Nelson! Very Happy And, glad to see you back on the forum. We've missed you. Sad

It's no problem leaving early or coming late. Just be quiet and respectful when you enter/leave. The meeting probably won't go until 7pm anyway.

Shark pic




From the looks of it, it has had it's fins removed, which means it was probably sourced from a fishing boat.

To entice more members to come...

We will have FOOD and DRINKS at the meeting! Wink Thanks to the sponsorships that we've received these past few weeks, we will be providing Goldfish and Shark Gummies along with refreshments at the meeting. Nothing toooooo fancy, but yummy nonetheless. Smile
