Three great white sharks have appeared off the Atlantic coast in recent days, according to a nonprofit organization that studies large predatory fish.

According to OCEARCH, the tagged shark has been “ringing” off the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina in the past 24 hours.

WSB-TV reported two calls were made Tuesday night near Georgia. A 1,300-pound shark named “Bob” was discovered off the coast of St. Mary’s Island. Another adult great white named “Breton” chirped further away.

A 425-pound juvenile great white shark named Anne Bonny after an 18th-century Caribbean pirate was captured near Charleston, South Carolina.

Bob and Breton were originally both tagged in Nova Scotia, Canada, according to an OCEARCH Facebook post. Anne Bonney was tagged in North Carolina.

Capt. Chip Michallove, owner of Outcast Sport Fishing in South Carolina, told Fox News Digital that many great white sharks typically leave the waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the southeastern United States this time of year, heading north as far as Nova Scotia. He said he would move. .

“These are emotional days,” he said. “Their diet will completely change. They’ll go from chasing turtles and dolphins to looking for seals.”

Only a small number of great white sharks have been tagged, Michalob said. In recent years, researchers have begun to understand shark migration routes and patterns, thanks to technology that allows them to monitor shark locations in real time.

But tagging sharks that can weigh thousands of pounds presents challenges, said Michalob, who catches and tags sharks.

“It’s hard to put the brakes on a 2,000- or 3,000-pound fish,” he says. “It’s probably more difficult to find them. Get them ready, chum them…and let them settle down well enough on the side of the boat to put two, three or four different tags on them.”

“It’s tough,” he added. “It’s the angle of catching the shark, and the angle of leaning over the side of the boat, and the angle of putting on this kind of technology that doesn’t hurt the fish and makes sure the fish swims away fine.”

Despite extensive research on other shark species, there is minimal information about the breeding patterns of great whites, Michalob said.

“We don’t know where they mate. We have no idea. Some think it’s off the coast of North Carolina. Some think it’s near Massachusetts. Maybe the open ocean. All we know is , just the approximate area where they are mating’ birth.

“This is a fish you can’t put in an aquarium and learn from,” he added.
