Lydia, a 14 ft Great White, will be the first Great White Shark to be seen crossing the Atlantic. Lydia was tagged with a Satellite tag off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida in 2013, as part of the Ocearch Scientific Project. Ocearch is a non-profit organization who is a leader of research on Great White Sharks.shark1
