Marine biologists from Cal State Long Beach Shark Lab study sharks along the California coast
California State University of Long Beach Shark Lab scientists deploy baited remote underwater videos to opportunistically capture juvenile white shark "selfies". Using coloration unique to each animal's gills, pelvic fin, and tail fin the scientists can identify individual animals.

A baby shark is seen aboard the Whitby Rose in the North Sea
A baby shark is seen aboard the Whitby Rose in the North Sea, off the coast of Whitby, northern England February 28, 2013. Whitby, once a busy fishing port, is now a shadow of its former self. Only 200 people are now employed in fishing, and the fleet is down to just a few boats. Global warming has expanded fish habitats northwards, with fish stocks sometimes disappearing for weeks on end. Boats return from sea with largely empty nets, and the atmosphere is sour. Often schools of fish then reappear unpredictably, resulting in bumper catches and causing much jubilation - but then E.U. quotas kick in and force fishermen to dump excess catch in the sea to avoid hefty E.U. fines.

Over ten thousand pieces of shark fins are dried on the rooftop of a factory building in Hong Kong January 2, 2013. Local sales of the luxurious gourmet food have fallen in recent years due to its controversial nature, but activists demand a total shark fin ban in the city, labelled by some as the shark fin capital of the world. The fins were shipped from an unknown location and unloaded at a nearby pier to be dried on the rooftop. REUTERS/Bobby Yip (CHINA - Tags: ANIMALS ENVIRONMENT BUSINESS SOCIETY)

Small islands off of Vancouver Island's town of Ucluelet are seen from aboard the Ocean Sunset commercial fishing boat in the Pacific Ocean, British Columbia June 26, 2012. The Ocean Sunset is a commercial fishing boat that hunts sharks as well as other fish for their meat and fins. After the fishermen catch them, dogfish sharks are sent to a processing plant, the fins are removed and the body is skinned. The bellies are exported to Germany to be smoked for pub food, and the fins are sent to Asia, where they are used in shark fin soup - a delicacy in Chinese culture. Animal rights advocates criticise the shark fin harvest but others say that eating shark fins is an old cultural tradition. Picture taken on June 26, 2012.
