EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Researchers say they've tracked a great white shark from the waters off Massachusetts to the Atlantic Ocean off central Florida.
According to the nonprofit shark research group, Ocearch, the 2,300-pound shark they've named Katherine surfaced Saturday morning in the Atlantic off Edgewater in Volusia County.
The group has been tracking Katherine since August, when the shark was tagged off Cape Cod, Mass. Researchers tell Florida Today that thanks to Katherine, they're learning that great white sharks swim south much faster than previously thought.
Great white sharks migrate south in the late fall and early winter. Ocearch researchers capture, tag and release great whites to help gather more data about the large predators. Off-shore transmitters help researchers track the sharks by satellite.
