On the morning of July 21, 2009, the Eye-in-the-Sea (EITS) camera system was deployed with a bait box and some fish carcasses bound to its frame. Within minutes of its deployment, a large school of Cuban Dogfish Sharks surrounded it and began tearing at the bait and swimming in and out of the EITS frame.
Five hours later, the EITS was found capsized and dragged from were it was originally deployed. Nearby, a six-gill shark was spotted innocently swimming around. Next to the capsized EITS, a mysterious tangled mess of fishing line, with a rusty hook and a glowing illuminating lure still attached.
This footage reveals how the EITS was knocked over and dragged 20 meters.
