“small” great white shark hanging around obx

This great white went across the Pamlico Sound!

Bruin, a great white shark, at 5.5′ and 101 pounds is still small by the standards of his species but he sure gets around. Tagged off the eastern tip of Long Island by Ocearch in August, he has traveled over 1300 miles and recently pinged near the Swan Quarter Ferry Terminal according to the News & Observer.”A great white shark has now been detected three times near the North Carolina coast this week, and each time it has been closer to the mainland.

The tagged shark, named Bruin, most recently pinged in the bay at the Swan Quarter Ferry Terminal, near the point where the Pamlico River meets the Pamlico Sound. It has traveled across the sound since surfacing 20 miles off the Outer Banks coast near Buxton on Monday, and then again Tuesday in the middle of the Pamlico Sound, west of Avon.”
