OCEARCH is a data-centric organization that’s an enterprise we built to help scientists collect previously unobtainable data in the ocean to help move the system toward abundance.
Research expeditions are conducted aboard the M/V OCEARCH, which serves as an at-sea laboratory. The M/V OCEARCH offers a 75,000 lb. capacity hydraulic platform designed to safely lift mature marine animals out of the ocean for access by a multi-disciplined research team to gather up to 12+ samples in 15 minutes.
The OCEARCH STEM Curriculum enables students to learn STEM skills while following the real-time data on the movements of their favorite sharks. The free curriculum, available for grades K-8, is based on the OCEARCH Tracker and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
OCEARCH operates in the “Now”, with our team of multimedia storytellers, we are bringing the world along in real time as we chase scientific data. With the help of the OCEARCH Tracker and social media platforms, we are leading the conversation on shark science in the digital space.
