The Sharklab is now located on South Bimini which requires a ferry ride from North Bimini where most lodging is located.

We enjoyed the tour provided by the Shark Lab. It is well worth the time spent there to learn about the lemon sharks. As a bonus, they has a Bimini Boa which we did not see on the nature walk.

I know that they are caught at a nursery on South Bimini’s waters after sharks come to breed. They are only kept for two weeks, and then released back into the water.
