Video of North Atlantic great white shark SPOT tagging

Boston’s WDHD.com has posted a video of last week’s SPOT tagging of a female great white shark in Cape Cod waters. The white shark, nicknamed “Genie” after Dr. Eugenie Clark, was out of the water for 16 minutes during the tagging process. “Genie” was measured at 14′ 8′ in length and weighed in at 2,292 lbs, according to OCEARCH’s profile of the tagged shark.

The SPOT tag will report data each time the shark surfaces. You can follow “Genie” (along with other white sharks tagged in South African waters) online at OCEARCH’s Global Shark Tracker page.
