Katharine is an immature Great White Shark, but she is still big

Posted By on May 13, 2014


The team at Ocearch tagged a Great White Shark they named Katharine off the Cape Cod coast of Massachusetts in August of 2013, but this 14+ foot 2,300 pound “immature” female has been checking out the Florida coastline and yesterday a beach near Sebastian. A few more miles south and we might see her poke her snout (?) into the Fort Pierce inlet to say hello. (see Florida Today)

    I’ll think twice before swimming too far out in the ocean. I had know idea that the Great White Shark prowls the beaches of Florida. When did this happen?
