WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A large great white shark “pinged” off the coast of Wrightsville Beach early Wednesday morning.
OCEARCH tagged the female shark, named Miss Costa, last September in Nantucket, Massachusetts. It is a 12’5″ and weighs more than 1,600 pounds.
OCEARCH is a non-profit organization with a global reach for unprecedented research on great white sharks and other large apex predators.
Since being tagged, Miss Costa has traveled from the Massachusetts down to Florida.
