This video from South Africa says about itself:

Dylan Irion, Swimming Behaviour of the Common Smoothhound Based on Accelerometer Data

A thorough understanding of the behaviour and habitat use of sharks is critical for improving our understanding of the movement ecology and thus the effective conservation of these threatened species. Direct observation of sharks is often difficult to accomplish in the marine environment where access to free-swimming individuals can be restricted by numerous factors.

The miniaturisation and reduced costs of producing sensors for bio-logging has provided several solutions to overcome this obstacle. The accelerometer is a sensor that functions by recording changes in acceleration due to the dynamic motion of a body, and the static acceleration caused by gravity.

In this study I demonstrate the potential for utilising tri-axial accelerometry as a method for characterising the movement of sharks. By attaching accelerometers to captive common smoothhound sharks (Mustelus…
