A sedan-sized great white shark weighing just under 1,500 pounds named Breton is currently traversing the waters near the North Carolina coast, according to a report by shark tracker OCEARCH

The organization, which advocates for ocean and shark conservation, has been tracking Breton since September 2020, when he was tagged. The latest ping from Breton’s tracker on Saturday afternoon indicated he was just off the eastern coast of Avon Island, of North Carolina’s Pamlico Sound. 

Breton, a male adult white who measures 13 feet 3 inches and weighs 1,437 pounds, is one of dozens of great white sharks tagged and tracked in an open source online database by OCEARCH.
