Paul called Carl, Conservation Officer for the Department of the Environment, who procured a large net which could safely take Beryl's weight and allow her to be moved without too much discomfort.
Carl and Greg managed to move Beryl to a wide opening in the ironshore where there was reasonable footing. They then waited for an incoming wave to swell the depth of the water and released Beryl back into the more serene waters of Half Moon Bay. Thanks guys...
2024-07-20: Beryl, our quiet Smooth Dogfish shark who lives in Half Moon Bay, managed to get herself trapped in an ironshore pool on the western side of the bay. Very boring, just swimming around in circles waiting for help!
