White sharks are not considered endangered or threatened, but it's illegal to hunt them in U.S. waters.The research is exciting because it represents the "first real insights into the movement patterns of white sharks" in the northern part of the Atlantic, said Tobey Curtis, a Massachusetts-based shark researcher for the National Marine Fisheries Service who was not involved with the study.The study seems to hew closely to what's been observed of white sharks in other oceans – that juveniles tend to stay in the relatively shallower waters of the continental shelf where food sources abound, while adults are more apt to venture into open ocean, observed Christopher Lowe, a shark researcher at California State University in Long Beach also not involved with the research.
