I was fortunate to have seen this great white shark while it was still on exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium before it was released into the open sea today. It spent 55 days at the Aquarium. Like the five other great white sharks that spent from 11 days to six-and-a-half months at the Aquarium before being safely released, the newest shark will carry a tracking tag that will document his movements in the wild. The pop-up tag will collect information on where he travels, the depths he dives to and the water temperatures he favors for the first 180 days he’s back in the wild. You can stay updated on his whereabouts by following the Sea Notes Blog.
