BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – A new Great White Shark has introduced himself to Brevard County after his tracking device recorded him around 30 miles east from Cocoa Beach this week, according to Ocearch.
‘Ironbound’, weighing in at 1,000-pounds, was recently tagged by Ocearch in October. The male adult shark has since accumulated over 1,200 miles in distance over the last couple of months.
Measuring at 12-feet and four inches, ‘Ironbound’ was named after West Ironbound Island near Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
He is the 53rd white shark SPOT-tagged by OCEARCH in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean.
