If you remember there was a ship that came to the Cape last July to tag Great White Sharks. The ship is a retired Alaskian crab boat. The ships name is Ocreach. They were able to capture,measure and tag 2 Great White that they released back into the water. The tags they are putting on the sharks are capable to transmit for up to 5 years. They have a Facebook page that they have maps showing were the sharks have been. It's going to be interesting to when the sharks head back to our waters. Here is a video of them captureing the sharks.

Speaking of great whites, I saw on the shark hunters website that in Oct they tagged a 20 foot GW off the cape! Thats a monster that I would not care to see in my 12 foot kayak.
