MIAMI, Fla. — A 15-foot, 2,000-pound great white shark has been recorded off the coast of Florida, according to OCEARCH, a non-profit research company.

The shark, named Unama’ki, is one of the largest sharks ever tagged in the Atlantic Ocean and is the second largest shark OCEARCH has ever tagged.

Unama’ki recently pinged just south of Miami.

OCEARCH said Unama’ki could be traveling a similar path as last year when she swam past the Florida Keys and into the Gulf of Mexico.
