Scientists at Ocearch.org named her Nukumi:

Nukumi, pronounced noo-goo-mee, is named after the legendary wise old grandmother figure of the Native American Mi’kmaq people, a culture that has deep roots in Canadian Maritime provinces. With the new data we’ve collected, this matriarch will share her wisdom with us for years to come. She will continue to help balance fish stocks in the surrounding waters, and we look forward to learning more from this wise guardian of our ocean’s eco-system.

According to Ocearch, “she is the largest #shark we have sampled in the Northwest Atlantic #whiteshark study to date. She will help our collaborating science team with 21 research projects.”

CNN says she is 50 years young!
