Researchers Tag Another White Shark off Cape Cod

ORLEANS – Another great white shark was tagged off the coast of Cape Cod Monday.

The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy and state shark expert Dr. Greg Skomal tagged an 11-foot male near Nauset Beach in Orleans.

Researchers have since named the animal “Alex,” in honor of a young boy in the United Kingdom battling cancer.

The organization is in the fourth year of a five year white shark population study in local waters.
