The mature male is the largest white shark to be internally fitted with an acoustic transmitter tag in Australian waters.
Fisheries Minister Troy Buswell said the shark - measuring four metres from its nose to the tip of its tail - was one of two caught off Albany’s Cheynes Beach in August.
The scientists surgically implanted small acoustic transmitters - or tags - in the sharks’ stomachs in a quick procedure alongside a boat and then released them.
The network now uses about 320 receivers positioned in the seabed and 20 satellite receivers to monitor tagged sharks - 136 white sharks, 171 whaler sharks and 19 tiger sharks.
The alerts can now be delivered within less than two minutes of a shark being detected by the monitoring network.
