UPDATE II: Grabbing Tigers By the Tail in Bermuda

One of the tiger sharks that was tagged by scientists in a Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation Scientific Expedition in Bermuda last August is still “phoning” in via satellite – almost 9 months after being tagged!

Correia, a male tiger shark first tagged in the vicinity of Challenger Bank, a reef system about 12 miles off the coast of Bermuda, has shown a very clear migration pattern – moving south to the Caribbean in the fall, staying in the warm Caribbean waters during the winter, and then moving north again into the Atlantic as the summer months approach.

The tracking map below details Correia’s movements since being tagged last August –

To see photos of the tigers being caught, tagged and released during the original expediton last August, visit the expedition’s photo album on Facebook.

Cheers!
