Global Shark Tracker

With Ocearch's Global Shark Tracker you can observe the navigational pattern of sharks that have been tagged with satellite tracking technology all for the purpose of shark conservation.

Sharks play a crucial role of maintaining balance in the delicate oceanic ecosystem as they have an effect on all levels in the food web below them. Unfortunately sharks are being slaughtered every day putting the shark at risk for survival. The navigational and migratory data being collected from Ocearch will be used to support and devise successful conservation and management strategies.
