An OCEARCH spokesman said there was no cause for concern. “We are currently studying great white sharks that inhabit the Northwest Atlantic off the coast of Canada and the US East Coast,” he explained. “That is why there are so many sharks there that have recently been RFID.”

California State University Shark Laboratory Director Christopher Lowe admitted that sharks rarely gather in the North Atlantic in winter. According to him, in the cold season, these fish prefer to migrate south. He suggested that the deviation from the norm could be explained by climate change.

Since 2012, OCEARCH employees have been catching great white sharks, placing tags on them and releasing them. This helps scientists study the behavior of these fish and learn about their movements.

The great white shark, or man-eating shark, is one of the largest predatory fish in the world. On average, representatives of this species grow up to 4.6-4.8 meters in length. Considered the most dangerous shark species to humans.

In February 2020, it was reported that researchers noticed a significant concentration of great white sharks near public beaches in the states of North and South Carolina, USA, near Florida and in the Gulf of Mexico.
