This is the second of three sharks tagged in the Sea of the Hebrides. We are receiving data intermittently, which indicates the shark is spending more time away from the sea surface now that the summer surfacing foraging season has come to an end. We received transmissions on September 18th, suggesting the shark has moved north towards the sea area called The Minch, with the Outer Hebridean islands to the west of the shark.
