About the event

At least 21 species of skate, ray and shark are found in UK waters and we'll be collecting the empty egg cases to discover what species may be laying their eggs in the Irish Sea.

We'll use ID guides to identify the species of egg case and will be sharing our findings with The Shark Trust, who keep a record of UK finds.
