Legend has it that the shark is a lone wolf.
He hunts alone.
The latest science shows that the shark actually hunts in packs.
In a groundbreaking experiment, five of the most experienced underwater scientists in the
world will dive at night among 700 starving sharks, the largest school ever recorded. It took
them 3 years of preparation to dare descend among the predators.
Their goal is to fit electronic trackers on one hundred squalls to monitor their movement
and organization during nocturnal hunting. The challenge is to produce a 3D mapping
which will reveal the sharks’ movements, gathering points, attacks and strategies, at a
scale that has never been done before.
This study revolutionizes our understanding of the world’s greatest predator.
