Hundreds of sharks have gathered near the east coast of the United States: what is happening

A Twitter user recently raised the alarm by posting a screenshot of the tracker app OCEARCH Shark Tracker, which shows about 100 sharks gathering in the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of the United States.

Platform user @punished_stu tweeted early on December 1 that “sharks are congregating on the east coast,” and attached a screenshot showing about 100 sharks along the US coast.

The tweet went viral with over 6000 retweets and 53000 likes.

The comments on the tweet were full of panic and jokes.

At the same time, a representative of the tracker said that there was no cause for concern.

“We are currently studying white sharks in the Northwest Atlantic, white sharks in the eastern United States and Canada,” the spokesperson explained. “That's why we have so many recently tagged sharks in this area. We have tagged 83 white sharks in the Northwest Atlantic. "

The fact is that OCEARCH Shark Tracker shows the movements of only those sharks that were previously chipped by scientists.

Dr. Christopher Lowe, director of the Shark Laboratory at California State University, said the sighting of predatory fish was not "terribly rare" and that climate change was a likely reason for the increase in shark numbers along the coast.

“This is not uncommon as most of these sharks were probably tagged in coastal locations,” he said.

“Although it is usually the season when smaller sharks migrate to warmer southern waters,” Lowe added.

He said, "Much of this pattern is likely due to changes in oceanographic conditions caused by climate change."
