Shark studied by researchers reported missing

HAIKU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A tag used to track a tiger shark is transmitting on Maui instead of the ocean.

According to officials, that could mean the shark was caught with the tag on or the tag came off.

A Florida researcher says the tag does not have any monetary value, but contains valuable shark data.

Local spearfishing advocates have been asking around the missing tag in Haiku where the signal has been transmitting.
