Katherine the great white shark is back off the North Carolina coast
The 14-foot great white shark known as Katherine is back cruising off the coast of North Carolina.
Ocearch, a nonprofit research organization that monitors the migratory patterns of sharks including great whites, is monitoring Katharine
Katharine weighs 3,200 pounds and was tagged in August 2013 in Cape Cod, Mass., according to PortCityDaily.com
A satellite tag was attached to the shark’s dorsal fin that sends coordinates of her position via satellite whenever she breaks the water’s surface.
Katharine has traveled nearly 70 miles in the last 72 hours, according to Ocearch, and she’s traveled more than 6,300 miles since she was first tagged.
Last year, Katherine surfaced off Pea Island and was spotted in the surf off Kitty Hawk.
