CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There are two hot spots where great white sharks surface, data from the shark tracking organization OCEARCH shows. The first is the waters off Cape Cod in Massachusetts, scene of the Jaws movies. But the second is in the ocean around North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the data shows.

“Not a big surprise to see the Cape Cod area, but check out North Carolina, South Carolina & Georgia!” OCEARCH tweeted.

The organization tags sharks and has an interactive map so people can see how the predators migrate along the East Coast. Each time a shark swims near the surface, their tracking device pings a satellite with the location.
