New Mapping System Can Track How Close The Largest Sharks Are To Charleston


A new system has just gone live on that offers the public a real-time map of the location of every large shark that has been tagged.

Sharks send their location information, along with their current size and speed via satellite to the organization to the new system.

Over the past few days, several of the organizations largest sharks that they have been monitoring have surfaced around the coast of Charleston.

Some of the most recent big shark pings have included Hilton, a 12-foot, 5-inch, 1,326-pound great white that continues to hang around off the coast of Myrtle Beach, Weimar, a 9-4, 304-pound tiger that is digging the waters off Jacksonville, Fla., and Beaufort, a 5-7, 107-pound juvenile tiger pinging northeast of Morehead City, N.C.
