  1. Hello. I am a marine biologist with the New England Coastal Wildlife Alliance (NECWA), an all-volunteer nonprofit based in southeastern MA. We established a community-sighting network for basking sharks and ocean sunfish in 2005 called NEBShark. We are asking fishermen, recreational boaters and beach walkers to report their sightings of both live and dead ocean sunfish and basking sharks to this network with the focus of better understanding these very unusual species in the waters of New England. We ask for basic sighting information when reporting to www.nebshark.org including: the date, time, general location, GPS position and photographs/video (if collected). Each fall, NECWA also works hard to rescue live ocean sunfish that strand along the shores of New England. As an all-volunteer group, we are always looking for help with these endeavors as all of us associated with NECWA are volunteering our time and efforts. If the animal strands dead, then we switch gears and conduct a necropsy or animal autopsy. We collect photographs of the carcass along with body measurements, weights, external and internal parasites and tissues. We are using this material to support our research as well as that of other researchers in the United States and worldwide. To learn more or to report your sighting today, go to www.nebshark.org. To learn more about NECWA, go to www.necwa.org. Thank you for your time and support. Best, Krill Carol "Krill" Carson Marine Biologist and President, NECWA krillcarson@mac.com
  2. Admittedly, this is a newb question. Do you guys use a tether to keep yourself attached to the kayak in case you flip in current? I understand this increases the risk of getting tangled In my understanding, if you flip in current like the sandy hook rip or the rt 36 bridge your kayak will quickly float away from you. I know its best to avoid these situations and pick tide and weather carefully, but lets say you find yourself flipped in current....what do you do?
