Why dont.you fucking idiots do a bit of practice before you acquire your permits and go out and kill the fucking things, they could possibly be one of the most important species of shark and obviously top of the shark food chain, but I'm sure just move on to the next,, what a joke RIP to the greatest predators period rigjt guys way to go you fuck tards

She tends to stay pretty deep in the water. I follow her, she's my favorite. There was a documentary about her, she traveled over halfway across the ocean fairly soon after she was tagged. Since she tends to stay underwater, she doesn't ping as often as the others. Sometimes she pings long enough that we know she's still alive, but not long enough to lock in her location. She pinged recently with a location - May 14, 2006. It had been months since she pinged with a location. Go to Ocearch.org and you can track her and the other sharks. I hope you will enjoy!

Good Morning, Question, do you have a program to share your journey with developmentally disabled adults? We live in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. not far from Jacksonville.. I work with adults with Autism, Downs and others. My goal is to give them opportunities to experience life in different ways. Hands on, personal interaction with your staff, maybe see your boat or a shark . I believe people learn more by hands on learning and interaction.
Is there a way to contact you directly

why do you harm the animals :(?
spookshowlady
spookshowlady - 5 years ago
It doesn't harm the sharks. They don't have central nerves in their fins, so tagging is, luckily, painless. It's slightly disorienting, but they bounce back as soon as they're let go.

This is very critical for the research of shark behavior and helps scientists in their efforts to save these endangered creatures. If you go to the website, you can see the activities of the sharks as they swim all over, showing that they are very much alive and well.
Dieselyoyo

+The Gaming Raptor the shark is not harmed don't worry. Her eye's are covered she doesn't know about anything and she won't get scared this way. They are just tagging her to keep track of her and if needed even protect her. Great whites are endangered and these people just want to make sure she will live a happy shark life.... such a beautiful creature!

Lydia is my favorite of all the sharks. From her navigation data on Ocearch website it shows she spends most of her time in deeper water including making two trips out to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Wow. Mary Lee is completely different, she stays much closer to the coast. I would love if we could get more information about dive depths, etc. I know I read on Ocearch that Lydia is a deep diver, but the depth data doesn't seem to be available on their website as a feature that we can search.

Great work Ocearch and thanks to Caterpillar for all their support.

It's depressing the amount of people on here that are anti-tagging. People who scream "SHARKS ARE KILLERS BLARG" are bad enough, but people who assume sharks will be fine if we leave them alone, if we don't research them, are burying their heads in the sand. 

Sharks are killed in the millions every year due to finning, longlines and nets, sports fishing, destruction of breeding grounds and other factors. Humans do NOT leave large apex predators, land or sea, alone. The 1970's Jaws panics proved that, with sharks being slaughtered because we were afraid of them, and some of those sharks were very big, very old sharks.

These tagging expeditions are intended to gather data that can be presented to law makers, the general public, and science foundations that can further education about how our oceans work to regulate the temperature of the planet, to enact laws designed to protect endangered specieis, and to help us as a species understand who we are, and where we're going as inhabitants of this planet.

By demanding they be left alone you are unwittingly contributing to the ignorance that perpetuates the decline of predatory species. 15 minutes of discomfort is better than entire species annihilation due to ignorance.

It really would be nice if they find less intrusive ways to get this research in the future. While I understand the shark doesn't feel any pain, I'm concerned with the effect the device might have on the way it swims. It uses that fin to help direct itself after all. Is there anyway to just stick the transmitter to the shark's main body like they do with sea turtles?

For those of you who do not follow OCEARCH or have not heard of it I strongly suggest reading into it.  This is a great organization that aims to create real time data on large predatory fish that is shared with the public.  Understanding our ocean's largest predators is imperative in understanding what makes an ocean ecosystem healthy.  I have grown up loving sharks and watching sharkweek and it is great to see OCEARCH getting some attention.  Before you start talking about animal cruelty when they "tag" these sharks, please read what OCEARCH is all about.  Keep up the good work guys!

If "Everyone" and by that I mean the majority as they are so often called keeps saying "kill all the sharks because they are mindless eating machines", then surely this research will prove them wrong! I love Great Whites a true pinnacle of predatory evolution, If you need a real life example of how some attack victims look at sharks check out Bethany Hamilton, She is a pro surfer who unfortunately lost her arm in a shark attack, She doesn't harbour any ill feelings about sharks and still rides the surf like a boss! She is still sponsored as a pro and still competes... She even trains in the bay she was attacked in!

Why did they have to drill hole's through her poor body. That bulky transmitter they attached to her would cause her great drag and seriously effect her hydrodynamics too, when in attack mode traveling upwards of 30 knots through the water, it's sad.

It's obvious, it will be great, if we can just left them. But we already interfere in their habitat and leaving them is not enough. If we now just leave them, they will die, because of, for example, the pollution of waters, where their reproduce. And before we left them, we have to make researchs like that.

So does the shark live the rest of its life with a tracking device attached to its fin? While it may not cause the shark physical pain, I wonder if it could affect its sense of balance or its sense of direction.

Seriously wrong, I don't get this at tall.  I've been loosely following the story about this on Carve mag and other facebook feeds, first I thought it was a joke but realised it was actual research into what sharks get up to.  Leave them be, totally disgusting how they catch the shark and haul up and then all is saying we know sharks have been doing this for 100,000years for what actual purpose are they following this shark other than to say its crossing the Atlantic?  Shame on surfers who have got on board with this shite.  Disgusting and sad human activity.

Are you serious? You have no idea what your talking about. This won't hurt the shark at all, nor will the shark most likely remember it. We study to save! We learn their habits to help protect a dying species! You know nothing. Do not spread stupidity if you don't know what's really being done.

Eric Faith

I don't understand why everyone is claiming that this "is not research". The shark doesn't feel anything during the tagging (the dorsal fin lacks central nerves), and they release it alive and healthy afterwards. This helps them record migration and behavioral patterns. It is certainly research, and helps us understand sharks a lot more than we used to.

Eric Faith I have a brachial plexus injury and I still feel pain and my arm totally paralysed.... Also it's not just about pain..these things the bolt on with a dewalt drill and no iodine or something to kill infection was used that I seen of .. also these things must interfere with hunting... Yes white shark conservation is a must but if man just left them alone and only watched them and didn't feed them I have confidence the sharks would do very well without us...were the sharks problem and the reason the huge whites are gone .. deep blue is a one of fish which were once common..

+Marcus Zimmer your ignorance physically hurts me
miscellaniac
miscellaniac - 6 years ago
+Marcus Zimmer Do you understand basic anatomy? There are no nerve receptors in a sharks fin. None. Zip. Nada. This means that the shark cannot feel pain, or as you put it "pain" in its dorsal fin. The freakiest thing for the animal is probably having a bunch of people yelling stats around it and having a hose put in it's mouth for the 15 minutes (that's right, 15 minutes) it takes to take down its information.

Those 15 minutes of "pain" (god that makes me laugh. No nerve receptors= NO PAIN. Jeebus) and confusion could mean life or death for the entire genus. So tell me wonder boy, what's better for the shark? 15 minutes of what amounts to an alien abduction so the general public can get a clue about the entire species, or death at the hands of uninformed assholes who think sharks are monsters? Sharks already have it rough: they're being finned in the millions every year, and there are some heinous individuals out there who fish for sharks because they think it's sport. If there's an opportunity to limit the needless deaths of sharks by researching them like this, wouldn't you say it's worth 15 minutes of discomfort?

+Marcus Zimmer  You're kidding, right? There is a difference between tagging humans and tagging sharks.

Just as Bob Jones said, we don't have a need to tag humans. We can talk to each other verbally. Without tagging animals, just how would we research the different species? How would we know what we know about animal migration patterns, or feeding patterns, or animal behavior in general? And before you say "that stuff isn't important", I suppose you think it "isn't important" if we just build bridges over rivers full of endangered fish, or set up oil drills over areas full of endangered cetaceans.

According to the OCEARCH Facebook page, the shark's dorsal fin does not feel pain, because it lacks any central nerves. So it really does not feel anything when they drill through the fin.

When was the last time you went to the ocean looking for a GWS? The food chain won't miss this fish. It is an apex predator not a keystone species. Every year a few come down for 2-3 months and leave, the food chain doesn't know when it arrives or when it goes. What idiot said they protect the ocean? From what? Dead whales or porpoises?

These shark are out here every winter, this isn't news off of Florida. These guys may or may not have an agenda to restrict fishing in the GWS territory. I hear some reports they are fishermen doing good things and I hear they are laughing all the way to the bank. The fact is they have killed a few GWS using their methods. They have shown the video on their own show of them releasing a dead GWS. So the fact is their methods are very harsh on an animal they claim to love and blah blah blah.

I am sorry but I have to really disagree with those of you who say this is not research. Great Whites or sharks in general, are the main "scare" of the beaches. My students are doing current event reports once a month and these taggings and updates of Lydia and Mary Lee have spread throughout my class as current events of the current research brought by these shark and what all the OCEARCH crew are doing. So if you count it not as research why are you watching in the first place?

Those of you who are saying these people are doing it for money aught to get educated about this project before you spew your biased views. The actual taggers are from Mote Marine, one of the premier research facilities for shark research in the world. Thy are working in conjunction with other Massachusetts universities to learn not just their migration patterns but to also test the to see what their Mercury levels and other bioaccumulated toxins that they get from eating their prey.

I'm always at Ponte Vedra Beach.. And now I know that there's white sharks out here, I always thought they were in the area! I think I'll keep my board out of the water for a few days.. Haha

A small tag is one thing...and no, i have no problems with the tags that release after a given period of time.... this is a giant plastic block that is literally bolted to this animal. An injury to their fin still does not change the fundamental shape of the animal. Think of an F-15 with proportionately sized blocks bolted to the tail...how well do you think it is going to fly?

allegronontroppo1 - 8 years ago
This is awful. How could men of science do such a thing? They just took all the aerodynamics away from this animal. That block will cause a serious problem in coordination for this animal, and as a result, its hunting will suffer. They probably just killed a Great White shark; and should be fined or arrested for it.

-Dr. Domeier, the original Ocearch scientist, has recently SPOT tagged a large Great White Shark WITHOUT bringing it out of the water. -All other researchers throughout the world are using slings when they need to incapacitate sharks.

gypsy blu - 8 years ago
Ocearch team uses a platform to raise over 1 ton of animal (designed to be suspended in the water) completely out of the water with its full weight bearing on internal organs and/or any young inside. -These effects of such a large mass of weight on internal organs have been shown in other large pelagic fish to show long term higher risk for death and in the case of whales, has been recognized so significantly, it is policy among aquariums to use a sling.

Ocearch claims their data is “ground-breaking” for the discovery of “unlocking the secrets of the Great White”. a) Migration route and gathering locations data has been around for over a decade. Prior to Ocearch, approximately 80-90% of migration loops were known. The use of other tags and photo identification have already shown what SPOT tags are showing. The risks associated with Ocearch’s methods to gain the final 10-20% of data is not justified.

The Ocearch team uses a large hook and buoys to drag the shark to near death exhaustion over multiple hours. Other researchers throughout the world have been able to acquire the same data using pole tagging without hooking the shark.

They are doing it for MONEY! The scientists on board are NOT the TOP SHARK experts...they are new young scientist grabbing the opportunity...OCEARCH have over a 50% failure rate in their tagged sharks...partly because the track system is later used to HUNT them.... :/ GET THE FACTS!

Wouldn't fit below but: Research for things like this is typically done not by "save-the-world foundations" but by sportsman interested in preserving or bettering the outdoors for future generations.

Nene ako: Great whites are one of the most mysterious creatures in the ocean. They aren't fished for by most countries but, of course, there are exceptions. These guys have done this sort of research from S. Africa, to California, to Guadalupe Island, and an area between Baja California and Hawaii. I BELIEVE (maybe not so) they haven't lost one with this technique. These are true fisherman/spearfishing guys that really are interested not only what but WHY things are happening in the ocean.
