Great White Sharks Have Returned To The Waters Off Nova Scotia For Another Summer

They are back. Great white sharks have returned to the waters off Nova Scotia for another summer. They are regulars off the province’s coast but it hasn’t been until lately we learned how plentiful they are due to a GPS tagging program.

An adult white shark, nicknamed Mahone had its signal received south-east of Sable Island Bank. The white shark Ironbound is back in these waters as well. Mahone measures in at 13 ft 7 in 1,701 lbs, the largest male shark tagged by OCEARCH in Canadian waters

A great white shark’s diet consists mainly of seal, so you can sleep easy and continue to visit our newly opened beaches. It is VERY rare that they attack humans. The last unconfirmed fatal shark attack in Nova Scotia was over 128 years ago in August 1891.

OCEARCH tagged 11 great white sharks off our province during Expedition Nova Scotia in 2019 and eight sharks in 2020.
