The shark tank is back

Scientists from the Monterey Bay Aquarium are back in the Santa Monica Bay, working to capture a young great white shark, the 7th in a series. They'll keep it in the floating tank and, if it feeds and seems to tolerate the stress of captivity, will transport it north.

There it'll go on display in the aquarium's shark exhibit for anywhere from a few days to several months, again depending on how well it tolerates the stress of captivity.

Before they set it free, the scientists will tag the shark with a geolocator, then track its journey online. The program, while geared toward research and conservation, is not without controversy. Lots more info here.
