View footage captured by the Eye-in-the-Sea (EITS) camera system revealing how it was knocked over and dragged 20 meters.

On the morning of July 21, 2009, the EITS 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.

Yet, only 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. And next to the capsized EITS, a mysterious tangled mess of fishing line, with a rusty hook and a glowing illuminating lure still attached. Video courtesy of Bioluminescence Team 2009, NOAA-OER.
