The other three tagged sharks in the Tristate area are a boy named Charlotte, 8 feet 300 pounds, a boy named Martha, 7 feet 184 pounds, and a boy named 6 feet 7 inches. , Oceanch reported as of Friday.
A fifth shark, a 10-foot, 5-inch, 600-pound shark named Rose, is being tracked from the waters of Delaware Bay and will arrive this weekend.
Ocearch researchers say shark numbers peak in late summer near Cape Cod before making a lengthy journey of about 1000 miles back to Carolina.
The four great white sharks tracked from Tristate Water are not the largest of the 70 sharks currently tagged by Oceanch.
There is a tracked 11-foot Andromache lurking along the New York coast in May, one of the largest of all. According to the New York Post, a giant 17.2-foot great white shark, Nukumi, recently returned off Nova Scotia after swimming in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

For beach enthusiasts who are determined to arrive on the beach this summer, Oceanch has an online global shark tracker that offers real-time shark tracking.
Although shark attacks by humans are rare, Fisher warned swimmers and surfers to use common sense underwater.
“It doesn’t make sense to dress up like a seal and go out in the middle of the food chain,” Fisher said.
“The moment you were three feet in the ocean, you were in the wild and risked,” Fisher warned. “It’s the same as wandering in the unprotected or unprepared forest during the bear season-you may kill yourself.”
