Last fall, we gathered around our computers to follow the progress of Mary Lee, a 16-foot Great White shark, as she worked her way down the East Coast and poked her nose into Charleston Harbor. Tagged by OCEARCH, a non-profit studying shark migration, she is currently swimming between Bermuda and the Bahamas. But this week, off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, the OCEARCH team tagged a new shark. Nicknamed “Lydia,” this 2,000-pounder provides further evidence that Great Whites, whose migrations are still shrouded in mystery, have long been swimming Southern waters.
