It's been shark-drizzling here off and on all day.

I'd be more worried about a Sharkano or Tsharknami*.

* only a matter of time, isn't it, Asylum?

I thought subby said Skanknado,  I was really interested there for a moment.

I was expecting something about tracking them leaving waters that will soon be turbulent or staying deeper underwater to avoid it but I guess not.

These all pale in comparison to the Sharkpocalypse.

Let me rock you Sharkicane

Scientists tagging sharks in Gulf to predict hurricane intensity

how do they get the spray paint to work underwater?

And I was just settling down to watch Deep Blue Sea.  It's going to be a bumpy ride.

/love me that movie if for no other reason than the way Samuel L. exits the film.

Funny. There's a group called ocearch that tracks tagged sharks. Big news down here in the Keys is that a 14-foot great white, one of the tracked sharks, is Katharine, tagged in Cape Cod last year. Arrived in the Keys Monday (every time they flip their tail in the air, the tag "pings" to give the location). Great whites are extremely rare down here though we have plenty of other kinds of sharks.

Just waiting for the RiffTrax blasting of it.

Ocearch are a bunch of frat bro fishermen whose 'research' involves dragging exhausted white sharks onto their boat (crushing the shark's internal organs), drilling holes in their dorsal fins and bolting permanent GPS transmitters onto them. All for their reality show.

Ocearch has already killed at least one white shark and the rest have those radios rusting on their fins. They're the Dane Cook of the shark research world.

Wow, dude, we were having a civilized discussion about sharks. There's no reason to get so nasty about it.
I mean Jesus Christ, why would you say such a vicious thing about anyone? It's not like they raped your mother. It's just sharks and then you go and compare them to Dane Cook. Modmins, please, banninate this kind of hateful, vile talk. Nobody deserves to have that said about them.

Dam it Subby. That's the fap of the wings that makes all the bad stuff happen. 3 movies and 2 seasons on TV. Thanks for nothing!

I don't think you know how shark (or any animal) tagging works; it's almost always a fisherman who tags the fish -- they're right there way out in the ocean when the animal shows itself. And tagging isn't "drilling" and "bolting." Citation needed on the claim they killed a great white, please.

But still no money for sharcano monitoring.  Damn You Bobby Jindal!  You have doomed us all!

There are two basic systems for tagging sharks. The most common is a temporary GPS or acoustic broadcaster; these are designed to detach and float to the surface after approximately 6-9 months. These are preferable to the permanent tags which are literally bolted onto a shark's dorsal fin after the shark literally has holes drilled into the fin with a cordless hardware drill. Researchers don't like to use the permanent tags because it impairs the shark's swimming.

This is all Shark Week 101, dude.

Darth Macho,

I never heard of Shark Wranglers, so I am going to assume this is a thing from what you linked, which is sad. I think this is far different than what I said in my original post.

Just my opinion, of course, but going on my knowledge down here of the responsible fishermen -- recreational, charters -- there is no "wrangling." Sure, we catch sailfish and tag them, then release them. Lots of other fish too. It's basically like a staple gun; for the fish, a temporary "ouch." Any other method, not good.

That said, it's been fun to track Katharine. She's swum a helluva long distance -- and no one is going to touch her. That's how it generally is, not the extreme Shark Wrangler stuff.

Just saw a shark today. LOL at the tourists I was guiding that missed it because they didn't follow me (and I was swimming sloooowww). Just a whitetip but awesome nonetheless.

/just wanted to brag
//if you ever go on a snorkel tour, follow right behind the guide
///the other tourists will scare off everything - the leader sees it all

I read that as Shark Wiggers.

You fools!  Sharkcano is coming. Massive killer lava sharks ejected from the very bowels of the earth, to kill you and everyone you've ever loved. You have no chance to survive make your time
