Brent Winner teaching kids about sharks
Brent Winner "All men are drawn to the sea, perilous though it may be. This rings true for Brent Winner! Having grown up in a small Iowa farm town, his fascination for sharks and the sea began at a very early age and led him on a lifetime journey of scientific study and research. He received his bachelor's degree in zoology from Iowa State University and his master's degree in marine biology with an emphasis in sharks, from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.
Brent has been a fisheries scientist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for 24 years. He has published scientific papers on a variety of Florida fish species including red drum, snook, sheepshead, snappers, groupers, sharks, and rays. He has served on the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission's Shark Technical Committee for the past eight years. Brent has participated in cooperative shark studies, including numerous research cruises with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and most recently, aboard the OCEARCH research vessel, during their "Expedition Jacksonville", tagging and researching white sharks.
Brent loves to teach and share with others his research interests and high seas adventures. Over the years, he has presented research results at numerous state and national scientific meetings and has shared his passion and knowledge of sharks and rays with local community organizations, primary and secondary schools, aquaria, and universities. He has also worked with local and national media on shark and ray issues throughout his career, and has appeared twice on the Animal Planet's show Untamed and Uncut.
Brent is scheduled as our Opening Night speaker on October 1, 2014 @ Breadline Plaza. " Shark sex 'the birds and bees".

According to Brent Winner, marine biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, cownose rays are typically found along Florida's coast almost all year long.
"Cownose rays will make huge migrations up the east coast then come back down in the winter months," Winner said.
"If you're in the water, stand there and enjoy it," Winner said.
"They're not aggressive and the location of their spine makes it difficult to be hit by it," Winner said.

Brent Winner, a scientist at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, noted that people harvest an estimated 100 million sharks annually worldwide.
Scientific data show that many shark populations have been dramatically reduced by almost 50 percent over the past 25 years," Winner said.
"The pores detect the presence of electric fields produced by all living creatures in the sea," Winner said.
"It is one of the few sharks that may inhabit fresh water," Winner said. "It sometimes ventures hundreds of miles inland via coastal river systems. "This is one of the more dangerous shark species, accounting for the third-highest number of attacks on humans," Winner added.
Now, harvest is prohibited on more than 20 shark species in both state and federal waters," Winner said.

"It's very important for people who visit Florida waters to be aware of their surroundings, understand the relative risks, and be educated on various shark issues such as behavior, biology and fisheries," says Brent Winner, scientist for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI).
In the over 400 million years that sharks and their ancestors have roamed Florida waters, their role in their environment has changed very little.
