A shark in the pen

trawler and shark penThere's a young white shark in the floating pen outside the Cove. Brought in by fishermen who found it tangled in their net, it's a male "young of the year", which is means he's under a year old.

He's been there since Aug. 6. That's about the time the trawler started anchoring right next to the pen. The PIO for the aquarium says the shark was scraped up when he came in, but seems to be adjusting. Bait fish that have been placed in the tank are missing, presumed eaten. (He won't hunt larger prey, like seals and sea lions, until he's over a year old.) They'll watch him for a week or so to see whether he's a candidate for the exhibit, the PIO said.

And here's today's dawn, a ribbon of fog creeping up the canyon.
