July 08, 2011The first great white of the season was spotted a tad early in May by Menemsha fisherman Jeff Lynch, who saw the 18- to 20-foot shark swimming around a whale carcass off Aquinnah.

But over the past week, the great whites have returned to Cape waters in force. There have been three confirmed sightings from Chatham to Truro, and an unsubstantiated sighting off Nantucket that expert Greg Skomal of the state Division of Marine Fisheries thinks will likely prove true.

Read more about sharks in Cape Cod watersThere was never any doubt the great whites would be back. Seals, their preferred food, are now abundant on the Cape and Islands.

Skomal oversees the state's great white tagging program that placed satellite tags on five animals last summer and five in the summer of 2009. Researchers also fixed an acoustic tag that communicated with receivers set up along the Chatham and Orleans shoreline to a sixth shark last summer.

While the satellite tags gave researchers the big picture of where these mysterious animals go after they leave Cape waters, the acoustic tag gives a glimpse into their habits while they are here.

On Thursday, the state released the early results from that tagging effort. It showed one shark migrating to Georgia and another going around the tip of Florida into the Gulf of Mexico.

The satellites tags cost roughly $3,000 each and gather water temperature, depth and light readings that help to establish their location. They are programmed to detach themselves from the shark at specific intervals, and transmit data to a satellite that relays it to researchers. But two of the remaining three satellite tags released prematurely and the third never broadcast its data, the state report said.

One of the sharks, an 18-foot female whose tag released off Georgia, broke the pattern set by tagged sharks the year before. While they stayed relatively close to shore on the continental shelf in waters 100 to 150 feet, this shark swam far offshore and repeatedly dove deep, as far down as 2,500 feet.

"It's generally thought that deep diving is associated with some kind of feeding behavior," Skomal said. Giant squid? Schools of fish swimming deep? Or was the shark seeking out a comfortable temperature range?

"Impossible to tell," Skomal said.

The acoustic tag sends off a signal that is recognized by receivers set up along the shoreline, and it provided some fascinating behavior patterns, Skomal said.

The shark was tagged in early August and remained in Cape waters, off and on, until Nov. 7, after which there were no more signals recorded. Signals were only recorded during the day, and Skomal thought that was logical since great whites are visual predators that need to see their prey.

"There are conspicuous gaps (in recorded signals) where it disappears for two weeks or 10 days," Skomal said, noting researchers can only speculate that the shark may have been eating a seal, or would leave the area for feeding opportunities elsewhere. Or, large tropical storms, with powerful waves may have sent sharks further offshore. The tagged shark didn't seem to care much about whether the tide was low or high, Skomal said.

"We're still playing with the data," he said. A receiver set up at Nauset Beach in Orleans, where there are a lot of swimmers and surfers, was either stolen or vandalized, and researchers were deprived of the chance to study the behavior of the predators around humans.

While the state pays for Skomal's and a second biologist's time, private donations cover the cost of the tags and hiring the boat, crew and plane to do the tagging.

This year, $68,900 in donations from the Sacco Foundation, Save Our Seas Foundation, Discovery Communications LLC, Coastal Conservation Association, Cape Cod Salties Sportfishing Club, John Whalen and David Eldredge will allow Skomal to deploy more receivers and tag more animals.

'Jersey Shore Shark Attack' first official Syfy trailer -- EXCLUSIVE

“Stay away from the water, bro!” Syfy’s genre-busting summer film Jersey Shore Shark Attack now has a guido-chomping trailer. The film stars Tony Sirico (The Sopranos), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Jack Scalia (Dallas), Joey Fatone (‘N Sync), William Atherton (Die Hard) and Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino (playing an enthusiastic reporter). The movie unfolds during the July 4 weekend at the Jersey Shore, where angry sharks are on a rampage, devouring residents, leaving it to the locals to save the day. The film debuts Saturday, June 9. There was a leaked trailer floating around from the show’s overseas distributor, but here’s your first official look from Syfy:

Signals off Chatham point to great whites
By Doug Fraser
dfraser@capecodonline.com
June 21, 2012CHATHAM — State Division of Marine Fisheries shark researcher Greg Skomal said Wednesday that two great white sharks that were tagged in July and August have returned to Chatham waters.

Both sharks were fitted with an acoustic tag that broadcasts a unique signal that can be picked up on receivers placed in shallow waters from Chatham to Wellfleet.

When researchers downloaded information from the receivers last week, they found recorded signals from June 8 that matched the ones from the great whites tagged last summer.

"We use these tags for this very reason. It tells us when they arrive, is it the same animals and how long do they stay," Skomal said.

On the other end of the Cape, a 13-year-old Bourne resident reported seeing a basking shark Wednesday.

Steven Prevett said he and a friend were swimming in the Pocasset River just after 1:30 p.m. when the 12-foot shark made its way toward them.

He said they saw a dorsal fin and then left the water and ran to the nearby jetty to get a better look at it.

"I thought it was really cool, because it was really big," he said. "At first my dad didn't believe me, but then he drove up — and at first he couldn't find it, but then it swam up right near the jetty."

Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.

Officials: Stay away from seals off Chatham

By JON OFFREDO
joffredo@capecodonline.com
July 02, 2012Authorities in Chatham have advised boaters and beachgoers to keep at least 300 feet away from any seals.

The advisory comes days after a 12-to-15-foot great white shark was spotted Thursday in the surf zone near the southern tip of North Beach Island.

No beaches have been closed in Chatham, Dan Tobin, director of parks and recreation said.

Officials last summer closed Chatham beaches temporarily due to increased shark activity offshore.

A spotter pilot looking for sharks under a state tagging operation photographed a 12-to-15-foot great white prowling close to seals Thursday in the surf zone near the southern tip of North Beach Island.

This was the first confirmed great white sighting of the season, said Greg Skomal, state Division of Marine Fisheries shark researcher.

Drawn by the area's seal population, great white sharks have been more common off Chatham in recent summers.

Nauset Beach reopens after shark sighting










By Karen Jeffrey

kjeffrey@capecodonline.com

July 09, 2012
ORLEANS - Nauset Beach was reopened Sunday after being closed the day before when a shark was seen swimming not far from shore. And in Chatham, where reports of sharks have drawn tourists and news media since the start of summer, beaches were open and no shark incidents were reported.

The shark sighting that led to the evacuation of bathers from the waters off Nauset Beach occurred around 2 p.m. Saturday.

Orleans resident Dana Richardson said he first spotted the shark as he was paddleboarding near Pochet, about a mile south of Nauset Beach.

It came as a frightening surprise.

A lifelong Cape resident and longtime surfer, Richardson is using a paddleboard for the first time this year, he said. He set out Saturday at high tide. Was he looking for a shark? "No, no, no," he said emphatically. "I know better than that."

He was about 150 feet from shore in 8 feet of water when he spotted a fin. "At first I thought it might be a sunfish. I'd seen one of those before," he said. The fin was moving parallel to the beach, but turned and began following him, Richardson said.

"Once I got over the sandbar, it moved away," he said. Richardson said he headed toward Pochet Beach and yelled out to people, asking if anyone else had seen the shark. "I don't think anyone believed me." He then headed toward Nauset Beach, intending to warn lifeguards there, when he spotted the shark following a kayaker.

"My plan was to go in and warn the lifeguards. I didn't want to just yell, 'shark, shark,' and scare people," he said. "But when I saw the fin following the kayaker I began yelling and waving my paddle" at the kayaker.

Richardson said he headed for shore as quickly as possible, and later went in search of kayaker Walter Szulc Jr., of Manchester, N.H. The two met and exchanged tales of their shark encounter.

Had Richardson been scared? "You bet," he said.

Richardson said he did not plan to paddleboard Sunday. "My wife suggested I take the day off," he said. "I think that's a good idea."

There have been three reports of sharks spotted off Cape beaches since the end of June. Experts say an increased seal population is probably attracting the sharks. Across the Cape officials are advising people to stay at least 300 yards from seals.

There has not been a shark attack on a human locally since 1936, when a man was killed swimming in Buzzards Bay near Mattapoisett.

The above link doesn`t seem to be working. As far as shark photos go.

The CCT`s had a story recently (no link) about a shark ramming the boat of EZYDUZIT after being tagged.
Appartently the shark who was tagged also jumped up & out of the water yards away from this boat. She was upset that they tagged her.

So have been searching for photos of that day!!!

If anyone here knows where to find these photos please help!!!!

First great white shark of the season spotted off Orleans

By Ethan Genter

egenter@capecodonline.com

Twitter was seeing white Mondayafter the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy posted a picture of the organization's first white shark sighting of the season.

Greg Skomal, senior marine fisheries biologist for the state Division of Marine Fisheries, was working with the conservancy when he captured footage of the 15-foot shark that was spotted about 100 yards off the shores of South Beach in Orleans on Monday, Cynthia Wigren, the executive director of the conservancy, said.

This was the second day of the great white shark research season, Wigren said, and scientists would be reviewing Skomal's footage to determine the sex of the shark and to see if it was one of the 68 tagged by the conservancy last year. Last year was the first year of a fiveyear study, Wigren said.

Last year the first shark was seen on June 28, she said.

Great White Shark Sighted in Cape Cod Bay

SANDWICH – A Sandwich fisherman recorded video images of a great white shark he spotted Monday morning while fishing in Cape Cod Bay.

Captain Tyler Macallister of the sport fishing boat the F/V Cynthia C out of Sandwich posted video of the big fish on his Facebook page and wrote, “This is a short video of a very large shark we came across yesterday [Monday] in Cape Cod Bay. . . . This was a 16 to 18′ female that hung around the boat for 10 minutes. I was very much in awe by the grace and beauty of this animal.”

Shark expert Dr. Gregory Skomal, Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries Senior Scientist, said he has seen the video of the shark and interviewed Macallister. He confirmed the sighting as a great white.
