Ocearch and the Race to Save Great Whites

The large apex predators of the ocean are threatened by overfishing and poaching. OCEARCH enables scientists to study live sharks, gather samples, and tag them.

Science Meets Explorers Meets Sharks

A group of explorers and scientists have joined together to get never-before-seen data on the movement, biology, and health of sharks.

Shark Catching 101

Using a custom at-sea 75,000 pound hydraulic platform, OCEARCH can perform multiple studies on live mature sharks.

The Great White Hope

As go the sharks, so go our oceans. The data collected by OCEARCH helps educate people on the importance of sharks, and helps prevent marine collapse by preserving these top predators.

Shark Tracker

By tagging great whites and following them in real time, scientists have been able to learn about their previously unknown long-distance migrations and mating habits.

About OCEARCH

Wipe Jaws from your memory. Great White Sharks and other large apex predators are the lifeblood of our oceans. That's why Costa is a proud partner of OCEARCH, a group of explorers and scientists dedicated to generating previously unattainable data on the movement, biology and health of sharks. All while protecting their future and educating the public. No one has ever attempted a program like this before. The information being collected is not only staggering, it's helping protect these predators at the top of the marine food chain. As go the sharks, so go our oceans.
