One of two great white sharks tagged by researchers near Hirtle's Beach earlier this week has started to be tracked on the OCEARCH website.
Early Monday afternoon the team was able to bring Nova aboard their vessel and attach a SPOT tag to his fin (see video below).
In an interview with HalifaxToday.ca Sunday, expedition leader Chris Fischer said the sharks will be detected any time their fins are above the water for more than 30 seconds.
Nova appears to be making his way southwest, pinging Thursday morning near Port Medway.
The male great white is approximately 11 feet long, was the first shark tagged by OCEARCH in Canada, and was named for Nova Scotia.
Later Monday, the crew tagged a second great white named Jefferson.
The 12-feet 7.5-inches long male has not yet surfaced long enough to be detected.
