    According to a new study, the population of the endangered great white shark in Canadian waters remains stable but is not increasing. This runs counter to the fears that ocean predators are increasingly prowling the northwest Atlantic region. Last August a woman was attacked by a shark in the waters off Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island. 

    There are even cellphone videos in the same month showing a shark eating a seal carcass. Now, shark-tracking apps are becoming more popular. The Ocearch group has operated in the region for several seasons tagging various animals. They then allow the public to follow the creatures online as they migrate into the northwest Atlantic from July to November.

    The joint study was published last month in the Canadian journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. It claims that the increased number of tagged sharks and bigger array of detection systems are taken into account, the number of Great Whites in Canadian waters appears stable.
