Geography in the News: The Great White Shark’s Habitats

Many secretly fear the presence of one of the fastest and most dangerous fish in the ocean—the great white shark—the largest predatory fish in the world. The 1975 Steven Spielberg film “Jaws,” starring Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dryfuss, did a great deal to strike the fear of great white sharks in the general public. Now Ocearch Global Shark Tracker is helping followers keep track of Mary Lee, a 3,546-pound white shark swimming off Long Island.
