White Shark journeys

Since 2005, New Zealand ichthyologists have tagged 44 White Sharks at the Chatham Islands and Stewart Island. The sharks' migrations are shown in the map. The shark named Pip swam across the Tasman to Australia then followed the coast north into tropical waters. Nicholas Cage swam to New Caledonia and back. Caro stayed in the vicinity of Stewart Island.
