The Atlantic Shark Institute (ASI) is an American non-profit environmental organization dedicated to research and conservation of shark species and shark research. The ASI primarily focuses on biology, survival and sustainability of sharks in the northwest Atlantic Ocean[1].

The Atlantic Shark Institute is part of several collaborative research projects[2] including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), and others. It carries out research multiple shark species including shortfin mako, great white, thresher, blue, porbeagle, and others[3][4][5][6][7].

Additionally, the Atlantic Shark Institute is a member the New England White Shark Research Consortium[8], a group of research organizations that are located throughout New England and Canada and focus on the science and sustainable management of the white shark within its northwest range.[9][10] Recently, the ASI tagged several white sharks whose migration patterns will help world's scientists learn about climate science and its effect on ocean predators.[11]


The Atlantic Shark Institute has appeared in news articles, films, documentaries, and newsletters when reporting on subjects relating to sharks and conservation.[12][13] Recently the Atlantic Shark Institute helped create and pass a Rhode Island law allowing the organization to produce charity plates[14][15]. The license plate has since broke two state records, selling nearly 3,000 plates in the span of four days[16][17]
