US | Henry Rodgers
BIDDEFORD, ME - JUNE 23: Dave Johnson, a professor in the medical school at the University of New England, releases a spiny dogfish, a species of shark, back into the water in the Gulf of Maine after James Sulikowski, a professor of Marine Sciences at UNE, performed an ultrasound on the pregnant fish Thursday, June 23, 2016. Sulikowski, who found the small sharks on the Tantas Ledge about 9 miles off the coast of Biddeford, will be featured on Discovery Channel's "Shark Week" this coming Sunday for using a similar technique on much larger tiger sharks. Sulikowski is pioneering the ultrasound method of research. Previously, scientists would have to kill the shark to gain as much information as they now can through ultrasound.
