Sixgill shark segment on OPB (I'm in it!)

The sixgill shark segment on Oregon Public Broadcasting's Oregon Field Guide is now online! The OPB folks filmed this segment during our charter with Team Hydrus [original trip report].

> *Sharks which normally spend their lives at the bottom of the world’s oceans have been found living in the relatively shallow waters of Puget Sound. Recreational divers and researchers lure sixgill sharks in for up close encounters. It’s believed Puget Sound is a sixgill shark nursery: a safe place to give birth and raise hundreds or perhaps a thousand or more young sharks. There has never been a report of a sixgill attack on a human.*

Unfortunately, Andy Letourneau, a crew member with Team Hydrus, recently passed away in a diving accident. Vince has posted a tribute to Andy on the OBP website.
