LONG ISLAND, NY - History is being made this week in the waters off Long Island, New York, as Ocearch says it's found the first-known birthing site for great white sharks on the north Atlantic coast.
Ocearch said its team of fishermen and scientists has found the first known birthing site for great white sharks on the North Atlantic Coast. After 26 expeditions, Ocearch said the birthing site in the famous waters off Montauk, Long Island is the most significant discovery they’ve ever made.
“It’s kind of like step two in the science,” said Chris Fischer, founder of Ocearch and the expedition’s leader. “When we started this work back in 2012, 2013... the real question was where are these sharks in the North Atlantic giving birth? Because that’s where they’re most vulnerable.”
For researchers, finding the North Atlantic birthing site can lead to better protection policies and far more scientific knowledge.
In less than a week, the team has fitted nine young sharks with locator tags, which will allow researchers to track their movements.
