Zack Smith, 26, is from Sunriver Oregon. As a young boy he dreamed of someday working in the field of marine science and was particularly interested in sharks. After taking a scuba diving course, he was sure that underwater was where he belonged. He has since logged over 4,000 dives, has nearly every certification a diver could receive and owns his own research company that specializes in tagging and tracking over 20 species of sharks including Mako and Great Whites. His teams do their research internationally including such places as Costa Rica, Madagascar, Hawaii and Australia.
At 6:30 pm, Lee Cox will be leading a discussion of underwater archaeological sites that have been found in New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania waters. A wide variety of sites have been identified throughout our region – including oyster schooner wrecks (here in the Maurice River), Revolutionary War sites, 19th century steamboats, pirate ships, Civil War era vessels, canal boats, and early 20th century schooners.
