Scientists hoping to attach electronic tracking devices to great white sharks off the coast of Cape Cod said they tagged their first one Thursday.
The team from OCEARCH said the shark is healthy and strong. The scientists named the shark Betsy.
"I think there was a lot grinding and a lot of work, perseverance and old fashion tenacity that went into delivering this fish to the science team. We accomplished all of our science goals, sampling goals and tagging goal. And Betsy swam off strong and is now on the tracker for everyone to see and track for a number of years," expedition leader Chris Fischer said in a video posted on YouTube.
