And now a worrying map designed by marine conservation group Ocearch shows the locations of finned predators across the world.

A number of different predators can be seen near beaches in Australia, including tiger sharks and whale sharks.

The app that uses a tracking system, allows visitors to check where the beasts choose to swim as well where it has travelled since it was tagged.

Users can also find out each shark’s name, estimated age, weight, and length by clicking on the shark.

The tracker also keeps an eye on other marine wildlife, including turtles and dolphins.

Ocearch says its scientists have tagged 431 animals in total.

They attach GPS trackers during expeditions aboard the research ship called the “M/V OCEARCH”, which serves as an at-sea laboratory.

The vessel contains a hydraulic platform designed to safely lift marine animals out of the ocean for access by a research team.

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old swimmer was mauled to death just 150m away from the beach at Buchan Point, near Little Bay in the first fatal attack in nearly 60 years.

British expat Simon Nellist was attacked by the beast while he was reportedly training for a charity ocean swim.

Witnesses said they heard the victim yell out for help in desperation as the shark pounced just after 4.30 pm on Wednesday.

The great white allegedly “attacked vertically” before dragging the man’s body out of the ocean.

His remains were found in the water on Wednesday afternoon.

The tragic Brit who was a regular swimmer in the bay was also reportedly due to marry his girlfriend, named by local media as Jenny Ho.
