Malibu shark now in Monterey

shark swims in exhibitRats. Just as I was about to kayak out and talk to the scientists on the Monterey Bay Aquarium's shark trawler, they decided the 4th shark they've put in the floating pen this season, a 4-foot female weighing 55 pounds, was ready for prime time.

They took her to the Malibu Pier yesterday, transfered her to a portable tank and right now, she swims with the fishes in the aquarium's Outer Bay Exhibit. The photo above is the shark swimming in her new (temporary) digs. Below is the shark as she was being released.

I wrote a post about it for my LAT blog, LA Now, where you can find more details. (Sorry, I'm too pooped for a re-write.)shark released into tank
