Track Tagged Sharks Online

The researchers from OCEARCH have spent the summer tagging sharks off Cape Cod. Now you can track the movement of each tagged shark online.

OCEARCH has provided a free, regularly updated worldwide map online showing the most recent locations of tagged sharks. In most cases, a device is secured to each shark’s dorsal fin, and when the fin breaks the water it sends a signal transmitting its location. When OCEARCH receives a signal from a shark, the information is updated on the map. And clicking on each shark’s button pulls up information about it.
