Catching Up with Great White Sharks

Tagging of Great White Sharks for science

The OCEARCH is a research vessel that travels the world, tagging Great White Sharks with GPS trackers. Their goal is to better understand shark’s lives in order to ensure their future survival.

Great Big Story caught up with the OCEARCH in the Gulf of Mexico, where a team of scientists is tagging the Great White Sharks of the western Gulf to track their breeding, birthing, and migratory patterns.
