Welcome to the Shark Tracker
Here you will find the latest position information for the sharks we have tagged with remote tracking transmitters. We have deployed both Wildlife Computers PAT-MK-10-F tags and SPOT5 tags. These tags offer the latest technological advance in tracking free living marine species.
Mark / re-capture, Plankton and distance sampling surveys are undertaken in parallel with telemetry deployments. Our group is focused on gathering data to support the implementation of a sustainable management initiative for the species in Irish and Atlantic waters. Please browse the website for more information on our projects and goals.
As part of the Shark Tracker each shark is named and adopted by a local coastal community or organization. These names represent the character of each associated group and the close association they have with the marine environment and their coastal heritage.
Note: Once Tags are deployed details on individual sharks and their track will be available on this page.
