Possible Great Whites along northern Oregon Coast

A place for Oregonians to plan a car-pooling road trip, find a nearby diveable mudhole, and meet new local dive buddies.

Possible Great Whites along northern Oregon Coast

The Northern Oregon/Southern Washington Marine Mammal Stranding Network responded to two adult harbor seals, one adult Steller sea lion and a 7-foot striped dolphin that were all believed to be close to shore after being attacked.

After a necropsy, Oregon's Seaside Aquarium, which coordinates with the stranding network to pick up animals from area beaches, said that in each instance the animals appeared to have died as a result of attacks by a large shark, either a great white shark or a broadnose sevengill shark.
