Nonprofit traces path of shark around NJ watersPosted: Updated:
A 100-pound hammerhead shark is making its way around New Jersey.
The nonprofit organization OCEARCH tagged the 7-foot-long hammerhead named Elias last month in Montauk, NY.
OCEARCH received signals that placed Elias off the coast of Belmar this weekend. Elias also swam around Point Pleasant Beach, just south of Mantoloking, according to OCEARCH.
Elias has traveled more than 400 miles in three weeks, according to OCEARCH, which is tracking the hammerhead's path.
