Great White Shark Located Off Coast of Long Branch

Martha, a 184-pound great white shark, was spotted off the coast of Long Branch, according to Ocearch.

Ocearch is an organization that uses data to track the otherwise unattainable discoveries in the ocean. The organization has 416 total tagged animals. They have recently reported that Martha has “pinged” off the coast of Long Branch.

Martha was first tagged off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts and has been traveling south since Ocearch has been able to track her.

Another recent sighting of a shark in the area was in mid-August when there was a possible Bull Shark in the Navesink River.
