Tiger Shark Breaks Distance Record

How far can a tagged tiger shark go? This Guy Harvey science program tracks one so far it broke records.

This is a story about a science program initiated and funded by our friend Guy Harvey's Research Institute. It tracks a tiger shark named "Andy" and was published in Sportfishing magazine. Harvey's programs are really cool to follow, and you can find his institute here.

Tiger Shark Distance Record

Tagged in Bermuda by scientists from the Nova Southeastern University's Guy Harvey Research Institute in 2014, the tiger shark has traveled approximately 37,565 miles off the Atlantic coast of the United States and around Bermuda, the Bahamas, and Turks and Caicos. Andy is now the longest-tracked tiger shark on record — and shows no signs of slowing down, as he's been trekking for more than 1,240 days.
