Scientists intrigued by makos migration behavior

MakosScientists at Nova Southeastern University in Broward County have been tracking two male makos they tagged last May and were intrigued to see the fish like to stay off the east coast between Massachusetts and the Carolinas.

Bruce and Matt J, named after the people who sponsored their satellite tags that pinpoint their location, were most recently spotted hanging off South Carolina. They were tagged off Ocean City, Md., not far apart from one another last spring. What’s interesting to researchers is that some mako sharks, like Bruce and Matt J, seem to go back and forth between the same places, while others make huge treks way offshore into the Atlantic.
