MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Marine scientists from the University of Miami had a run-in with a rather infamous predator off the coast of the Keys on Monday.

The RJ Dunlap Marine Conservation Program, during a routine sampling of shark population, was out on the water just east of Islamorada when they hooked a 10-11-foot great white shark.

The shark, swimming in approximately 100-feet of water,wasn’t tagged nor could the team take samples since the line snapped as they tried to reel it in.

While great white sharks do migrate a considerable amount, sightings of a the shark is rare in South Florida as they prefer colder waters.
