In the fall, Katharine was hanging out near Cape Cod, but amid colder weather, she decided it was time to ship out, the Times-Picayune reports.
She headed along the coasts of the Carolinas and appeared near the border of Georgia and Florida on Friday. The long journey is no big deal to Katharine, who has traveled some 10,000 miles since being tagged.
One of the biologists who helped tag her tells Action News Jax, "We used to think white shark was primarily an ocean species. Now our view is it's primarily a coastal species that moves off shore periodically." As for that coast: Katharine was pinpointed a few hundred yards off Ponte Vedra Beach, near Jacksonville, on Saturday afternoon.
