An 'adventurous' great white shark has surfaced off Delaware  6 Days ago

SALISBURY, Md. — As the weather and waters warm up in the mid-Atlantic, it’s not just “snowbirds” who begin their trek up north.

Cabot, a great white shark, is on the move north and most recently was recorded on Tuesday, May 14, in Delaware Bay, according to OCEARCH, a shark-tracking organization.

“I’m on the move! I started feeling a little adventurous so I’m visiting Delaware Bay,” OCEARCH tweeted using the shark’s handle @GWSharkCabot.

Cabot is a 9 feet, 8 inches “sub-adult” male weighing about 533 pounds, and OCEARCH said its latest ping was recorded May 14 at 10:16 a.m. off Delaware.

The great white was tagged by OCEARCH in Nova Scotia and is named after the explorer John Cabot, according to OCEARCH’s website, ocearch.org.

Since its first ping recorded Oct. 14, 2018, near Nova Scotia, Cabot has roamed the Atlantic all the way south of Florida and back up north, racking up nearly 4,000 miles of travel, according to OCEARCH shark tracker’s travel log for the shark.

Cabot is one of the several sharks of varying species that OCEARCH tracks through its tagging program.

Two other great white sharks have been recorded in the waters off Virginia and North Carolina in May — Hal, a 12-foot, 6-inch, 1,420-pound male, and Jefferson, a 12-foot, 7-inch male.

Last August, Miss Costa, a 12-foot, 5-inch long, 1,600-pound female great white shark, was tracked just off the Continental Shelf, around 100 miles east of Virginia Beach
