Researchers from the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science have completed the first successful tracking of a great hammerhead shark using satellite tag technology.

Professor Neil Hammershlag and his team tracked the shark for 62 days.  In that time, the great hammerhead traveled from South Florida north to New Jersey, then entered the Gulf Stream and open waters in the northwest Atlantic.  The total distance was 745 miles (1,200 km).  

Hammershlag plans to expand this preliminary work to a larger project of tracking tropical sharks in an effort to identify hotspots, ares that are critical to the sharks for mating, pupping and feeding.
