Chisholm is a fisheries biologist, as well as a nature photographer and videographer. Since 2006, he has been studying the sand tiger sharks of the Duxbury/Kingston/Plymouth Bay network. His earliest research began with the discovery of a shark in a local saltwater pond. Since then, he and his team have tagged hundreds of sand tigers in the 3’ to 4’ range.

Admission to the lecture is free, and light refreshments will be served.
