Many sharks we encounter have misshapen fins and body scars indicating serious injuries from other animals in the wild.Data from the accelerometers show that the animals recover and start swimming strongly within 2-4 hours after release.

For example, depth data from Mary Lee's accelerometer showed she spent about 8.62 minutes per hour near the surface in the first few hours after release. To ensure SRC’s satellite tracking study of sharks continues, adopt a shark!A tax-deductible $3,000 donation will cover the cost of one new SPOT tag. 20 foot Female shark. There are approximately 40 research papers currently in preparation or completed based on OCEARCH expeditions and resulting studies. One tag in particular, the Smart Position or Temperature Transmitting tag (SPOT), has the unique advantage of displaying a shark’s location each time the tag breaks the water’s surface for 90 seconds or more.

A 'Ping' is determined when the tagged shark's dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water and transmits a signal to a satellite overhead.

The 2020 Shark Attack Map features locations and information on shark attacks and bites across the world.

Learn more at OCEARCH enables the brightest scientists in the world by giving them approximately 15 minutes of access to live, mature great white sharks (and other species) to conduct up to 12-14 different studies including tagging and sampling. Seventeen research expeditions have been conducted to date, with seven more scheduled through the end of 2015. If you want in on the shark-tracking hype, check out these five tools keeping tabs on sharks, while also supporting greater understanding and conservation.

HYANNIS – A new interactive map that tracks the movements of tagged sharks in relation to commercial fishing activities was launched by Oceana yesterday as part of Shark Week. The M/V OCEARCH vessel is powered by 5 Caterpillar engines including two Cat 3412 mains and three Cat (4.4, 6.6) generators.What do you mean when you say that great white sharks are the balance keepers of the ocean and apex predators? White sharks commonly endure substantial injuries in their day-to-day lives from interacting with large prey and other sharks.

The shark, nicknamed "Deep Blue" by expert Mauricio Hoyos Padilla, could be one of the biggest great whites ever filmed, according to Discovery, the network that airs "Shark Week."
