Professor Frank Schwartz of the UNC Institute of Marine Sciences officially started the shark survey in 1972, although he unofficially began collecting data on sharks off the coast of North Carolina in 1965. The survey takes place on a 48-foot research vessel, the Capricorn, at two locations off the coast of Shackleford Banks in Carteret County, North Carolina.
