Sniffing out prey

Sniffing out prey

A smooth dogfish shark (Mustelus canis) — a small species, fairly common in waters off New England — swims in the newly-built testing flume located in the Environmental Systems Lab at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). Biologist Jelle Atema, of WHOI and the Boston University Marine Program, and his students are working to better understand how sharks use their senses to locate food.
