This is an image of the map provided by Bonfil's analysis of one SPOT tagged white shark.
Below are articles, papers, and maps of the White Shark Cafe for white sharks traveling from the Farallones and from Guadalupe out to Hawaii and back without the use of SPOT tags.
This graphic shows the route of a single tagged white shark as it swam from the Farallon Islands, off the central coast of California, to the mid-oceanic area known as the “White Shark Café” and then back.

This shows very directional movement, yet no SPOT tags were required, just patience.
This graphic shows the routes of 6 specific white sharks. One appears to have bypassed the cafe and gone straight to Hawaii while all the others went to the Cafe

This article was particularly interesting because the acoustic tags revealed that white sharks actually do enter the San Francisco Bay, past the Golden Gate Bridge, for short times.
Again, no SPOT tags required.
Now that's a very detailed map...that didn't requite SPOT tags.
Here are the tracks of 4 individual white sharks from Guadalupe Island to the White Shark Cafe and to Hawaii between 2000 and 2008.
Of particular interest is the fact that this data is based on pop-off SAT tags in a paper by Michael Domeier. I mention this because Domeier is an advocate of SPOT tagging despite his own evidence that it is unnecessary.
Domeier is best known for giving birth to OCEARCH by providing them with their first permit to go big game fishing for a protected species while getting big pay checks for being on a TV show. The world of white shark tagging has been in a downward spiral of garbage and ratings ever since. Thank you so much for your contribution, doc
