Atlantic Shark Institute

Sharks are harvested at an alarming rate and we're committed to doing something about it. Blue Shark Vodka funds critical research for the docile and near-threatened Blue Shark in partnership with The Atlantic Shark Institution.


The Atlantic Shark Institute conducts critical research and provides much-needed support and resources to the most respected shark researchers working in the northwest Atlantic. The result is high quality shark research completed in an open and collaborative way. The goal of the Atlantic Shark Institute is to partner with these researchers to answer the most pressing questions concerning the biology, survival and sustainability of sharks in the northwest Atlantic Ocean.

Our Efforts

Tag A Blue 2022

Blue Shark Vodka is proud to partner with The Atlantic Shark Institute in our collective Blue Shark Conservation efforts. Blue Sharks (aka blue dogs, blue pointers, blue whalers, great blues, great blue sharks, great blue whalers) are graceful open-water swimmers whose preferred diet is squid, with their numbers decreasing at an alarming rate.

Shark species continue to be misrepresented and misunderstood, and we hope that through our joint efforts, we can bring education, awareness, and protection to this beautiful ocean dweller. As a near-threatened species, Blue Shark Vodka donated $0.50 per bottle sale through 2022, in a collaborative effort to save this magnificent migratory genus.

As humans encroach upon the oceans, it is up to us, the people, to stand up as a united front to collectively save and preserve our oceans. It is our duty to protect and conserve our waters, not only for ourselves but for the astounding ecology that resides therein.

Keeping Up With Tag a Blue

2021 Efforts

After weeks at sea our dedicated research team with The Atlantic Shark Institute was finally able to locate and tag two female blue sharks and 20 males.

The scarcity of female blue sharks in the water has bolstered our mission for protecting and preserving this beautiful species. This was always the center of Blue Shark Vodka’s mission, but we are leaving this summer research excursion with a renewed sense of urgency.


  • 8 juvenile Great White Sharks tagged that the ASI will follow for 10 years
  • 500-pound thresher shark (Its large size will make this an important shark to follow.)
  • 12 short fin mako sharks tagged
  • Tagged and released 20 male blue sharks, listed as near-threatened
  • Two female blue sharks with SPOT tags
Thank you for buying and supporting Blue Shark Vodka — every purchase will continue to aid in this critical shark research and bring in those answers about shark populations we so desperately need.
