This spring, Stephen Nagiewicz, of Brick Township, an author, two-time Stockton graduate and adjunct instructor, conducted scientific demonstrations to explain how sonar and methane gas seeps could affect sharks for a team of filmmakers who visited the field station.
These demonstrations will appear on the third episode of Nat Geo WILD’s “When Sharks Attack” on Friday, June 24, 2016 at 10 p.m. ET.
Nagiewicz is chairman of the Shark Research Institute’s Board of Trustees, which is based in Princeton, N.J., as well as a veteran diver. As an explorer of the deep sea, he is accustomed to sonar marine technology as a tool to locate wrecks.
Stockton’s Marine Field Station is located on an eight-acre waterfront site in the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve and provides the facilities, research vessels, sampling equipment and staff to provide Stockton students with hands-on learning experiences in a marine environment.
