14-foot, 2,300 pound shark
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – One of the most famed sharks, Katharine, is getting closer to Brevard’s waters.
As one of Ocearch’s tagged Great White Sharks, the 14-footer was recently pinged back on Sunday near the Florida Georgia line.
In recent years, Katharine has made her way to Brevard County waters.
Since being tagged in 2013, the massive Great White has accumulated a total of 28,813 miles of swimming.
Her path trend is showing her moving away from the coast, however.
