Tracking technology is allowing OCEARCH to gather unique data on the oceans’ top predators, allowing you to follow along as sharks migrate through our oceans.
The new OCEARCH Shark Tracker lets you explore the migrations of sharks and other marine animals that have been tagged with state of the art satellite tracking technology.
OCEARCH is on a mission to ensure abundant oceans for future generations and you’re invited to learn alongside our science team through our OCEARCH Shark Tracker!
Sharks are the balance keepers of the ocean and the path to healthy, abundant oceans goes through them. It is critical that we understand the complete life history of these apex predators so that responsible management policies can be enacted to protect them.
OCEARCH facilitates unprecedented research by supporting leading researchers and institutions seeking to attain groundbreaking data on the biology and health of sharks, in conjunction with basic research on shark life history and migration. Data gathered from each animal on the Tracker is being used by scientists and institutions around the world to help protect each species and our oceans as a whole - and now you can track your favorite sharks.

Ratings and Reviews
My favorite social media
This app is so cool, I love all the sharks names and the comments people leave on their profiles. I’ve been putting so many people onto it and go on it all the time. I do with the app had a favoriting system so I could have a list of all my favorite sharks and maybe even get alerts when they ping. It would be nice if people could donate money to name some of the sharks or fund an expedition. I also really like how there are other animals like swordfish and turtles but I wish they were more recent. I think opening the app up to other aquatic animals and research groups could be a good way to adapt the app further, whales in particular would be cool. All in all, I love the app and am so glad I found it!
There ARE sharks in Hawaii
This app pretty good, pretty good. Was it amazing? Not really. I understand that you really cannot track every shark in the ocean. But I downloaded this app as a worried individual, looking for a way to feel aware of the sharks in my area before I hit the sand. And you know what, I saw the sharks on the map... but they were from like 2017. Now, I did see that you are able to see “pinged” sharks. Those sharks were updated only a phew days ago. That was helpful. And as I started to become less worried, then I looked at the entire map. And what did I see... NO SHARKS IN HAWAII. Concerning? Yes. Again I know that you can’t track every shark in the ocean, but like... common. I’m no marine biologist, but I know that sharks ARE in Hawaii.👁👄👁
I have always loved sharks and appreciate their importance.
I love this app because it has educational features that help my daughter and I learn about our
favorite ocean creatures. When my financial situation is better I will definitely donate to Ocean Research! We the people need to fight for the life of the ocean because if we selfishly keep abusing it we will loose everything that we need to survive. God bless the men and women who dedicate they’re lives and time to help preserve theses beautiful animals!
