Fins Attached Marine Research & Conservation

In March 2021 we are partnering with Fins Attached to sponsor 5 tags that will be affixed to 5 lucky sharks during their upcoming scientific research trips. As part of this we wanted to provide 5 or more names that could be given to the tagged sharks.


Please check out our Blog from our president’s own experience from a citizen science research expedition with Fins Attached, and his own personal video compilation where you can see receivers being replaced.


We would like to encourage you to participate in the naming event. We will be collecting names starting March 4, 2021 and then on March 19, 2021 we will post several commonly submitted and unique names that we receive for everyone to vote on. Voting will close on March 25, 2021. And we will then announce the Winning Names.


Below you will find the form to complete to submit as many names as you want, we would encourage you to think about names that may fit well with these species of sharks that Fins Attached regularly interacts with: Blue Sharks, Galapagos Sharks, Great White Sharks, Tiger Sharks, Silky Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, and White Tip Reef Sharks. Names can be gender or non-gender specific, and we will take a collection of all for the voting.

UPDATED March 19, 2021: Name Submissions are no longer being accepted.
