Study: Great white sharks are swimming farther and deeper

FILE – In this Sept. 13, 2012 file photo, Captain Brett McBride places his hand on the snout of the crew’s first specimen while scientists collect blood, tissue samples and attach tracking devices on the research vessel Ocearch off the coast of Chatham, Mass. Before release, the nearly 15-foot, 2,292-pound great white shark was named Genie for famed shark researcher Eugenie Clark. Researchers in Massachusetts say great white sharks in the Atlantic Ocean are venturing offshore farther, with more frequency and at greater depths than previously known. The findings were published Sept. 29, 2017, in the scientific journal Marine Ecology Progress Series. (AP Photo/Stephan Savoia, File)
