Top 10 SHARKS WE LOVE to follow: #3 is Unama’ki
15’+ mature female white shark Unama’ki was first studied in the fall of 2019 off of Cape Breton. We then tracked her migration in her first year on the OCEARCH Global Shark Tracker, down the Southeast, US around the tip of Florida. She did not return to the Nova Scotia region in the fall of 2020, and this leads us to believe it’s possible she could be pregnant.
This coming spring, she could reveal the potential birthing site of the Atlantic, Canada white shark. This data would be vital for the future of all Northwest Atlantic white sharks.
