The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy has launched a new feature on its popular Sharktivity app that notifies beach managers and app users of the presence of tagged white sharks at five locations along the outer Cape in real-time.
Users can access real-time detection information of tagged white sharks on the app thanks to five acoustic receivers that have been deployed the upper and outer Cape.
Now that the acoustic receivers have been deployed, the data has been integrated into the Sharktivity app.
Real-time receivers are represented as yellow icons on the app.
When a tagged shark is detected, the icon color will change to purple for one hour.
