A love story...
SHARKS ARE NOT JAWS!!
We set the story straight on sharks, seriously misunderstood and maligned ocean dwellers. We chat to shark researcher Jenny Bortoluzzi who fell in love with sharks a long time ago and now studies them at Trinity College Dublin.
We think you'll fall in love with them too, once you've heard her stories about sharks and how they survive in one of the world's toughest environments, the open sea.
You can follow Jenny on Twitter to access gorgeous underwater images: @SharkyJenny
Become a citizen scientist! If you spot shark egg cases (mermaid's purses) on the beach, you can report your find online at the websites of Marine Dimensions if you're in Ireland and The Shark Trust if you're in the UK.
If you want to find out more about the fish you eat and how it's caught, you can get some good information here: The Good Fish Guide
