Shark tagging off the Cape

Published by at 10:59 AM under Cape Cod,Fishing

Thanks to Marta for bringing this awesome shark expedition site to my attention. Ocearch is a serious tagging operation that catches Great Whites, hauls them onto a submersible sling, and then measures, tags, and samples these magnificent beasts before releasing them back to the sea.

They are currently having great success off of Cape Cod and have tagged two big sharks in the past week or so.

Once tagged, the sharks can be tracked online.

    Magnificent beasts indeed! My “Cojones Award” goes to the guy who is the first to leap onto the platform with one very angry shark to place a towel over his eyes. Yikes!

    So, you’re saying there’s a website that can tell me what area of the ocean to stay away from? Epic.
