Ocearch, a shark-tracking nonprofit group, says sharks showing up in the Carolinas is a good thing.

“It’s a great sign. It means you’re managing your ocean well,” said Chris Fischer, founder of Ocearch. “It’s full of life, and they’re coming in to balance it and take out the weak, the dead and dying, so the stronger ones can make more fish for all of us and our grandchildren to eat.”

Ocearch has tagged 33 white sharks in the Atlantic waters since 2012. They will begin a new tagging expedition in February, focusing on the East Coast from Myrtle Beach to Jacksonville, Florida.
