    There have been several Great White shark juveniles caught in the Atlantic Ocean off Daytona Beach during winter time. In January several years ago 3 sharks I know of were caught off shore Daytona Beach, Florida appropriately 30 miles from Ponce Inlet, South Daytona. All sharks were caught In or around January.

    Don’sDive Shop Ormond Beach Fl, Don Serbosik an ameture paleointologist & Dr Clifford Jeremiah Jacksonville Fl. made a fiber glass replica of one 6′ GW juvenile. The shark was mounted & put on display in the dive shop. That shark just a baby was very impressive! I. wonder if the Jacksonville female GW Sharks are returning to their birthing grounds?
