Tobermory Marine Week: Shark Day Fun

Children decorating shark cookies.The Scottish Shark Tagging Programme recently took part in the Tobermory Marine Visitor Centre’s Marine Week.

Monday the 4th of August was Shark Day which meant talks, tours and tasty shark shaped cookies!

An amazingly colourful shark cookie that appears to be wearing a bikini!The SSTP had a stand with lots if information about what we do to tag and protect sharks, skates and rays in Scotland. The Isle of Mull is a great area for Sea Angling and many of our tagged and recaptured Common Skate have come from near the Island.

In fact the Marine Protected Area that we suggested, and recently had accepted, to protect skate will be off the east coast of Mull.

Children, and adults, were fascinated by our example skate and shark eggs. Many didn’t realise any sharks laid eggs, but most of all, lots of fun was had making and decorating (and of course eating) their very own shark shaped cookies.
