Atlantic Great White

A great White Shark that was tagged in Cape Cod in the states has surfaced a handful of miles off of Jacksonville, Florida. The work was carried out by state biologists and it is hoped that the information uploaded from the sat tag will shed new light on the behaviour of the Atlantic population of Great Whites. A number of whites have been tagged on the pacific side of the states but this could be the first from the Atlantic. As the crow flies, the distance between the two spots is 1500 kms but the time span is around fours months, so it will indeed be interesting to see what movements the shark and his tagged co-horts got up to during that time.
