A great white shark was sighted this week in the waters of the Spanish Balearic Islands, and this is the first time in at least 30 years, a marine conservation group noted today.
The Alnitak group took pictures of the shark, which, it said, was five meters (16 feet) long on Thursday in the seas off the island of Cabrera and followed it for over an hour, it said on its Facebook Page, post a picture.
"There may have been unconfirmed sightings and various rumors in recent years, but this is the first scientific confirmation of the presence of a Carcharodon (Great White Shark) in Spanish waters for at least 30 years," he wrote. 19659002] Alnitak said the shark had been discovered when scientists were on a mission to obtain information on sea turtles, sperm whales, dolphins, manta rays and red tuna.
The team is also looking for tiny plastic debris on the sea.
