Scientists say the satellite tag for a great white shark has appeared in the Gulf of Mexico off Florida’s west coast.
Ocearch, a nonprofit organization that researches and tracks sharks, reports that “Betsy,” a 12-foot, 1,400-pound female, was found swimming about 63 miles off Boca Grande on Friday.
The shark was tagged during an August 2013 Ocearch expedition off Cape Cod. The expedition included scientists from Mote Marine Laboratory, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries. . .
