Andromache becomes the first shark to transition south for the season pinging in today off the Outer Banks! Last year she also made the move early, reaching the Outer Banks by the end of October. It’ll be interesting to see if Andromache continues her journey south or if she will stop in North Carolina for a bit.
We just passed the Fall Equinox and factors such as the seasons shifting and subtle changes in water temperature help trigger these animals to make a move. We will likely see more of our sharks making their transition south later this month and November.

Andromache was named by our partners Ulysse Nardin and is a symbol of maternity, strength and courage.
