Great white tagged, released off Lighthouse Beach

A PHOTO of a great white shark being tagged and released off Lighthouse Beach this morning has been shared on Twitter.

It's the 49th shark to be tagged for monitoring purposes.

The 48th one - a 2.91m great white - was only tagged and released yesterday at Angels Beach, Ballina.

Both come just days after a Ballina teenager was attacked by a great white.

There have been four great white sightings so far today, but it's unconfirmed how many great whites are involved.
