While Oceans Research works with both terrestrial and marine organisms, they are leaders in ecological, physiological, and behavioral shark studies in South Africa. They have ongoing research in White Shark population dynamics, habitat use, satellite tracking, genetics, predatory behavior, bite strength, and thermoregulation. Additionally they are doing physiological research on shark tonic immobility and morphometrics. They also work in tagging multiple other species of sharks within Mossel Bay to gain a better understanding of their life history as a whole. Their genetics work with the smooth hammerheads of Mossel Bay has helped to establish kinships within the smooth hammerheads of this area. Oceans Research aims to provide innovative and relative research for the management and conservation of South Africa while providing training to aspiring researchers and educating the general public.
