Explorers Club Field Trip - OCEARCH

Explorers Club Members are invited to tour the OCEARCH research vessel. Founded by Club Member Chris Fischer MN '10, OCEARCH shares real-time migration data through their Global Shark Tracker. Come meet the fishing team, tour the ship, and learn more about our upcoming Great White Shark Expedition in Montauk, NY. Kids are welcome.

OCEARCH is a recognized world leader in generating critical scientific data related to tracking (telemetry) and biological studies of keystone marine species such as great white and tiger sharks, in conjunction with conservation outreach and education at a measurable global scale. Scientists have approximately 15 minutes of access to live, mature sharks to conduct up to 12 studies. The sharks are measured, tissue and blood samples are collected, and satellite and acoustic transmitters are attached.

OCEARCH also inspires current and future generations of explorers, scientists, and stewards of the ocean through its STEM Learning Program. The free STEM Curriculum, available for grades K-8.
