Where baby white sharks 'hang out' in the North Atlantic

A team of scientists is the first to confirm the movement patterns and seasonal migrations of baby white sharks in the north Atlantic Ocean. They put the New York Bight shark nursery theory to test by deploying satellite and acoustic tags on 10 baby white sharks (less than 1 year old) off Long Island's coast. Results provide novel insights into the distribution of this vulnerable early stage of life that complements recent work on larger white sharks.
