Dr. Greg Skomal discusses the process of tagging several great whites off of Chatham in the summer of 2009 in order to track their migratory patterns. Several months later those tags returned valuable information. To Dr. Skomal’s surprise, he found that the sharks are generally hugging the Eastern Seaboard and are wintering in Florida. Skomal explained that he was surprised the sharks appear to be sticking so close to shore because other data indicates white sharks in the Pacific head far out to sea. Skomal discusses that scientists are just at the initial stages of understanding the habits of these fascinating predators. Tracking migratory patterns are just one little step to getting a greater understanding of their behaviors.moreless
