Several sharks have been pinged in coastal North Carolina waters recently.

A “ping” happens when a shark’s dorsal fin breaks the surface of the water, according to OCEARCH. It transmits a signal to the satellite from which an estimated location is determined.

OCEARCH is a world leader for generating critical scientific tracking and biological data of marine life, including sharks. Their website, OCEARCH.org, has an interactive map that includes real time data and most recent pings of the sharks they’ve tagged over the years.

Recently white sharks, blue sharks, and a shortfin mako shark have pinged nearby. Click through to see a list of the sharks and their data, including the incredible thousands of miles they’ve traveled.
