10-foot great white shark pings offshore Little St. Simons Island
GLYNN COUNTY, Fla. – Miss May, a sub-adult 10-foot white shark, pinged off of Little St. Simons Island in Georgia, OCEARCH said on Monday.
Miss May was the first white shark tagged during OCEARCH's Expedition NASFA. A blood sample was taken from the 10-foot, 2-inch female great white shark since it was off the coast of Mayport.
They attached a tracking device so the shark's movements will be tracked in real time whenever she surfaces.
She was named after Mayport, FL which will be OCEARCH's future home at a joint Jacksonville University and OCEARCH facility.
