Drinking for conservationSHARK TRACKING

Chandeleur Island Brewing Company has partnered with Mississippi State University’s Marine Fisheries Ecology Program to create a beer that gives back!  Shark Tracker Wheat Ale is a perfect Summertime ale and with every purchase the consumer is helping to support the Great Hammerhead Shark Tracking efforts in the Gulf of Mexico.

Perhaps no shark is more recognizable than the hammerhead, and sovereign among hammerhead sharks is the great hammerhead (Sphyrna mokarran). Great hammerheads live in warm coastal waters throughout the world, including the Mississippi coast. Generally solitary and highly mobile, great hammerheads are known to make round-trip migrations of nearly 2,000 miles. The largest of all hammerhead species, this magnificent fish can reach lengths of nearly 15 feet and has been observed using its signature hammer-shaped head to pin down and consume stingrays! Great hammerheads reside at the top of coastal food webs and are therefore a critical component of healthy coastal ecosystems.

Sadly, great hammerheads are especially vulnerable to the effects of overfishing and habitat loss. These fish grow slowly, reproduce late in life, and experience high capture stress; collectively, these traits make it difficult for great hammerheads to withstand overharvest. Globally, great hammerheads are considered Critically Endangered, and their population status in the United States is currently unknown. Protecting this species requires a better understanding of its movements, migrations, and habitat use.

At Chandeleur Brewing Company, we’re committed to the conservation of threatened species like the great hammerhead. To help protect great hammerhead populations, we’re pleased to introduce the Shark Tracker Wheat Ale beer. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer goes to support great hammerhead satellite tagging projects, which will provide critical data to guide future conservation and management strategies. Join us in our efforts to ensure great hammerheads reign supreme for generations to come.

Purchase Shark Tracker beer in our taproom or your favorite retailers, including local bars and restaurants.  You can also support this effort by purchasing Shark Tracker fishing shirts at the brewery located in Gulfport, MS.

The oceanic whitetip was selected as a representative for a signature species, the whitetip reef shark that will be at Mississippi Aquarium.  The Oceanic whitetip shark is a vulnerable species with its numbers declining drastically.

Oceanic White Tip Wit is a Belgian wit beer brewed with pilsner malt and unmalted white wheat lending notes of bread dough and a soft and creamy mouthfeel.  The expressive Belgian yeast provides spicy notes of clove and vanilla while the addition of key lime juice lends a tart and refreshing finish.

Tagging the Silver King: Scientists follow 8 Alabama tarpon

This article was originally published at al.com

January 30, 2019

Every year at this time, hordes of gigantic silver fish show up along the Alabama coast, setting off the brief but spectacular reign of the Silver King.

Schools of mighty tarpon, typically five to six feet long and weighing in at up to 200 pounds, arrive along our beaches just as summer is at its hottest. While the timing of their annual migration is well documented by scientists, fishermen, and historic records, there is much we don’t know about these giant and ancient fish, including where they go after they leave the Alabama coast.

📣 Tarpon Update! 📣

We have not one, but TWO pieces of good news for you today! 😃

1️⃣ A month ago, we announced that our tagged ADSFR tarpon, caught by Hollie Tew, was on the move. We’re happy to share that the tag is still attached and has provided us with 46 days of data so far! For the past couple of weeks, Hollie’s fish has been hanging out at the eastern tip of the Louisiana bird’s foot. Check out the map below to see the fish’s journey from the day it was tagged through Friday, August 30.
