Tagged Great White shark returns to coastline

A great white shark tagged by researchers last year has returned after a year in the open ocean, Sean Van Sommeran, Executive Director of the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation announced Friday.

He is expecting more sharks to be located in the near shore waters with the aid of satellite and ultra-sonic transmitters. The research team is tracking the shark's movement and range. Some great whites have been tracked from Ano Nuevo to near Hawaii and some have traveled as deep as 250 meters.
