Great White Sharks off of NJ

Recommended Posts

The recent abundance of harbor and grey seals along the NJ coast has led to an increase in White Shark sightings, as well as encounters with them while fishing. Here are two videos taken within the last two weeks, all in the area of the "28 Mile Wreck" (so-named due to it's distance from Absecon inlet, which is located at the north-end of Atlantic City)  Here's  a link regarding that wreck (which was known the SS Varanger in it's heyday) http://www.aquaexplorers.com/shipwreckvaranger.htm

White sharks are protected in US waters, all you can do is tag them for research purposes, you are not allowed to purposely fish for them.
