This August, during Shweekend, we asked Shark Week fans to vote for the name of OCEARCH's next shark. After narrowing the competition to Jazz, Amigo and Finley, one name chomped down on the rest of the competition: Finley the Shark it was!

This October, OCEARCH began their expedition to tag 20 sharks, including Finley, in Galveston, TX where they experienced beautiful weather and an excited community of shark experts and enthusiasts. Sadly, that beautiful Texas weather waned and sea conditions were unfit for tagging.

The OCEARCH team is fortunately not one to give up and they continued their expeditions earlier this week with much better weather (and of course chance at tagging Finley). We hope you're looking forward to meeting the shark you named either this week or next should all go as planned!

What species of shark do you think Finley will be? Let us know in the comments below.
