One of the satellite-tagged Great White Sharks, nicknamed Kathryn, who was originally tagged in False Bay on the 16th of April 2012, has just pinged in at a region called the Chagos Archipelago (near the Maldives), to the south-west of India.

Kathryn is a mature, female Great White Shark of about 4.5 metres (15 ft) in length, and weighing in at around 1102 kilograms (2430 lbs).

It has been a while since Kathryn has been seen in the False Bay area, but we are hoping to have her join us on one of our shark cage diving trips this season.
