Description

**EXTENDED EDIT NOW LIVE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8el3syekK0**

In partnership with the Cape Eleuthera Institute (@ceibahamas), we managed to achieve history, tagging an animal from a submersible (submarine) for the first time EVER.

Our objective was the deep-sea #shark, the bluntnose sixgill. This ancient species predates most dinosaurs, and is a dominant predator of the deep sea ecosystem. The lead scientist on the mission, FSU Marine Lab's Dr. Dean Grubbs, has been the first to put a satellite tag on one of these elusive sharks, but until now had only been able to do so by bringing them up to the surface.

Stay tuned for a full video from the mission coming up soon on #OceanX. Achieved as part of our ongoing partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies Vibrant Oceans Initiative (@bloombergdotorg) and The Moore Bahamas Foundation (@moorecharitable) to create One Big Wave for ocean conservation and stewardship. #sharkweek
