Tagged great white shark killed in Mozambique fishing net

A tagged white shark like this one, ended up in the gill net of Mozambique fishermen.

OCEARCH is reporting that a female white shark tagged in South African waters was killed after being caught in a gill net in Mozambique waters. The shark, nicknamed “Brenda,” was tagged earlier this year in Mossel Bay by OCEARCH along with a team of South African researchers.

According to OCEARCH the shark’s carcass was harvested. Its meat was given to a local village, while its fins were sold. Eyes on the Horizon, a Mozambique NGO, were able to recover the SPOT tag.
