New Findings about the Great White Sharks of the North Pacific

Just a couple weeks ago, I interviewed Scot Anderson, a local researcher who has studied Great White Sharks in the Point Reyes region and the Farallons for more than two decades.  Anderson described his recent findings about the sharks, including how they follow a strict migration path between the West Coast of the United States and the Hawaii region.  He and his colleagues with Stanford’s Tagging of Pacific Predators Program also found that the sharks off the North Pacific are genetically isolated, meaning they don’t mate with other Great Whites throughout the world. Watch and listen as Anderson describes the incredible details of how to tag a Great White Shark.
