Posted 04/07/2023 in OCEARCH,

March 31, 2023 Miss Costa pings in way offshore, only 300 nautical miles from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge!! It’s incredible that we are still able to track Miss Costa, as we studied her in September 2016. The average battery life for a SPOT tag lasts typically up to 5 years and we now have over 6 years of amazing data from her. When we sampled, tagged and released Miss Costa she was a sub-adult ...

Shark Tracker: Andromache Update

Posted 10/06/2022 in OCEARCH,

Andromache becomes the first shark to transition south for the season pinging in today off the Outer Banks! Last year she also made the move early, reaching the Outer Banks by the end of October. It'll be interesting to see if Andromache continues her journey south or if she will stop in North Carolina for a bit.


We just passed the Fall Equinox and factors such as the seasons ...

Ocearch's Most Famous Shark, Mary Lee

Posted 09/22/2022 in OCEARCH,

This weekend we've been looking back on one of OCEARCH's most famous sharks, Mary Lee.


"When we tagged Mary Lee and she proceeded to travel up and down the east coast and people tracked her and fell in love with her, it created interest in OCEARCH at a radical scale. Mary Lee saved OCEARCH. Everything that we have learned since then likely would have never occurred without her ...

When sharks are present in an ecosystem it is a positive sign of ocean health and abundance. As apex predators with diverse prey, sharks help prevent one species from monopolizing in a region, which then allows the overall diversity within an ecosystem to increase. Studies of marine areas with and without apex predators show ...
