AVON, N.C. – A great white shark who goes by the name, Miss Costa, has been tracked off the coast of the Outer Banks.
Miss Costa and other sharks can be tracked through Ocearch.org.
Ocearch says a ping happens when the shark’s dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water and transmits a signal to a satellite overhead.
The signal then sends back an estimated geo-location.
The shark is a 12 foot 5 inch female white shark weighing 1,668 pounds. She is consider to be a sub-adult
Miss Costa was originally tagged in Nantucket, Massachusetts on September 22, 2016.
