Secrets of the trade
- Diving proficiency is a must. Handling sharks is complicated in its own right, so being able to control one's buoyancy and having sufficient underwater experience is important.
- Aquarists need to be adaptable and handle all kinds of situations because you never know what problems the animals might have.
- One person cannot manage a whole exhibit or aquarium alone. Working with so many animals is a collaborative effort and good people skills are essential.
