(Blue Ocean Network.com - February 25, 2015) -- It's a sad day for us Ocean People. Pioneer, mentor, thought leader, author, TV star, Women Divers Hall of Fame honoree and much-loved "Shark Lady," Eugenie Clark died this morning in Sarasota, Florida. She was 92.
Eugenie was an American marine biologist who fell in love with sharks as a child with her nose pressed against an aquarium tank, and later became famous for her shark research, National Geographic articles and TV specials on the much maligned species. Eugenie changed the way we look at sharks.
