Fun fact for Shark Week: Where do sharks go? Our researchers have made surprising discoveries. Tagged sharks traveled from Southern California down the Baja Peninsula. Adult white sharks off Northern California have journeyed to the Eastern Pacific and the “Shark Café,” and as far west as Hawaii. Some made 1,000-foot dives! Check out this Today.com interview with our researchers, and see shark travels in real time at the GTOPP website.
Ever wonder what it’s like to tag great white sharks? Here are some photos taken off the Farallon Islands, 25 miles west of San Francisco. Shark tagging in Northern California typically takes place in October and November, a collaboration between the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University, next door to the Aquarium.
