Shark Tag 15176 Recapture!!

A 5.5 ft female blacktip was tagged in January 2017 off PINS by Ray Cedillo as part of the Texas Shark Rodeo and was recaptured in May 2017 near Port O’Conner by Willie Kandis and Rachel Kubena, who released her. That is a 110 mile movement in 5 months! Recaptures provide important information about shark movement and growth.
