(WTNH) — A great white shark has been tracked off of the coast of Greenwich, Connecticut by a group of researchers from OCEARCH who track sharks.
The shark is named “Cabot” and is over nine feet in length. The photos of the shark were taken when it was tagged near Nova Scotia last year.

OCEARCH says that it is not unheard of for Great Whites to be in the Long Island Sound, however, they were surprised to see one so far west.
