PHILADELPHIA - Researchers are tracking the migration patterns of a half ton great white shark who has been spotted off the New Jersey coast in the last year.
Measuring over 12-feet in length, Ironbound most recently pinged near the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Researchers with OCEARCH have followed Ironbound's path over the last year which spans from Canada to the Carolinas.
Sharks with GPS trackers, like Ironbound, will ping whenever its fin break the surface of the water. Ironbound was tagged back in 2019 and came within 80 miles of New Jersey's coast during its latest pass.
