Exactly how often are they weighing this giant death shark?

I just went to Osearch's Facebook page, and found out that one of the researcher's named the shark after his mother.

Paging Dr. Freud!

Because naming her Kate Gosselin would been over the top - - like jumping the shark or something.

Rufus Lee King: "One person posted that he had seen her in the Charleston Harbor. It is unclear if it was in fact May Lee because she did not ping in the Charleston Harbor."

Sounds like ol' Joe Bob got liquored up, saw a dolphin, and lost his mind entirely.


Or saw another great white. Or another shark species.

I was wondering how they got such a specific weight. Or did they just guess?

I'm guessing they weighed her by taking the length times the girth, and calculating the weight of the water she displaces, which would work out to 17.6 pounds per square gallon at sea level during a full moon.

Yeah Washout @ Folly is still the best, though every now and then off the pier by Windjammer you can catch a little something on IOP..

Uhhhh...so this shark has evolved to drag a cone shaped net through the water column ie a trawl?
Or is she cruising around at a slow cruise looking for prey? AKA trolling
It would be surprising and a little frightening if the great white has mastered net making/fishing techniques....

Anti-shark cage. You go inside the cage? Cage goes in the water, you go in the water. Shark's in the water. Our shark.

Farewell and adieu to you, fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu, you ladies of Spain. For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so nevermore shall we see you again.

Maybe they weighed her when she was caught and tagged? Could happen. Maybe that is when they determined it was a she.

Oh to be sure, she's a brutal killing machine. But she shows more remorse than I've ever seen in a human.

I imagine that they have a formula based on dimensions that generates numbers that look more specific than they are.

I read in another article they weighed her when they pulled her from the water.
