Great white shark tracked swimming in Long Island Sound

News

NEW YORK (CNN) — For the first time ever, a great white shark has been tracked to Long Island Sound.

Photos were taken by “Ocearch”, an organization tracking marine life. It shows the group tagging the shark, named “Cabot” who’s named after explorer John Cabot.

He’s a teenager who is nearly 10 feet long and weighs more than 500 pounds. He was spotted Monday morning off the coast of Greenwich, Connecticut.

And Cabot is quite the traveler — Ocearch says he’s logged 4,000 miles since last October, roaming the Atlantic Ocean from Canada to Florida.
