What is Shark Share?
Haphazard opportunities to collaborate leave research teams with thousands of unused shark, ray and chimaera (chondrichthyes) samples either waiting in storage, or discarded every year; wasting money, time and opportunities for world-class research.
Shark Share Global provides an online database where chondrichthyan researchers can submit tissue samples, search, and request them from colleagues around the world.
How it works
Upload a record of your unused, sharable tissue samples to the database.
Search available shark, ray and chimaera samples from scientists around the world.
Select samples from the database and request them directly from the contributor.
Focus your time and money on what really matters
Sign up to Shark Share Global and gain access to a collective database of sharable samples.
