Great white shark tagged for research

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- This weekend, scientists were thrilled to reel in a 2,000 pound great white shark that is now making history.

The female shark was caught Sunday near Jacksonville Florida.  She is the first great white to be captured, tagged and released on the Southeastern coast.

The catch-and-release was setup to help scientists research migration patterns.

"One of the big parts of our mission and the reason why you are here is to be inclusive. We are trying to allow the whole world to feel like they can be on the ship to experience modern day exploration," said Chris Fischer.

The shark now known as "Lydia" has a GPS device so scientists can keep an eye on her.

She was last seen near a popular surfing spot.

Now they will get a chance to see where she turns up next.
