About this app

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.

The app is a great concept and it's interesting and an important tool for the environment. However the data and filtering of data is in catagories that are of no use. Instead of separating data between location and last ping, I would need to see all data aggregated and be able to be filtered either way. Regards swimming we'd want to know location and relevant, latest and timely pings on the maps and same data set. Currently when searching location by map or 'near me', untimely pings are shown

It shows everything, but you can't tell when it happened until you click on it, and some could be several years ago. I would love this app if you could filter by dates, like ytd, last 7 days, 24 hours, most recent, etc. Then this would be well worth 5 stars, for sure. Imagine if it could send a notification if a shark was pinged within x number of miles of you. So many missed opportunities with this app.

This app has been so much fun for my granddaughter ( age 6) and me. We use it to complement our environmental studies and the idea naming the sharks is a great way to give them worth in a child's mind. I also wish there were more checkpoints. Right now she is so excited that it looks like Crystal and Andromache are traveling together!
