Tracking Tiger Sharks in Hawaii

Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System

PacIOOS Voyager map shows the movements of several tiger sharks who were fitted with satellite tags near Maui and Oʻahu in late 2013 and early 2014. These tags intermittently track their locations over time as the shark’s dorsal fin breaches the water’s surface. Pick a shark from the left-hand menu bar to watch an animation. Placing your cursor over a location spot gives you the date and time of the event. The square symbol indicates where the shark was originally tagged. There is a level of uncertainty associated with some of these locations – there may be over a mile in error associated with any given point.
