    Dr. Glenn Parsons aims to reduce shark deaths

    "Fishermen unintentionally catch millions of sharks each year, and many don’t survive the physical stress of being reeled in, but biology professor Glenn Parsons is designing a device that could prevent sharks from ever being hooked. If his "entangling leader" device is successful, fishermen may not have to handle sharks, which have roamed the ocean mostly unchanged for 400 million years." Click here for more.
