Two Oceans Aquarium to release all its ragged tooth sharks back into the wild

The Two Oceans Aquarium will next week release all of its ragged tooth sharks back into the wild. The move comes as the aquarium prepares to close down the I&J Predator Exhibit for repairs next month.

The aquarium has four female ragged tooth sharks in captivity and they range from medium size to large, according to Renee Leeuwner, spokesperson for the aquarium.

Leeuwner says the sharks are brought in by a team of collectors at Two Oceans when needed. When it is time to be released they choose areas where they are normally found at that time of year.

Because we look at where the migration is at that time of the year when we release them, we are able to put these animals back within their migration patterns.

Renee Leeuwner, spokesperson for the aquarium

The release will be done in two sessions, the first being on 24 May, and the second on 4 June in Mossel Bay.
