Steven Spielberg's Jaws and many other films have been commissioned to make us fear the great white shark for years. However, those terrible jaws not scare us so much by the discovery that Australian scientists have made.
Matt Weller, who you see posing in the assembly above, are committed to bringing the tourists as possible to those typical shark cages in which we have seen in documentaries. To reduce the risk involved in getting into the water next to an animal acting on instinct, Weller began to collaborate with a team of scientists to investigate its behavior and almost by accident discovered that the music of AC / DC calm the sharks.
Among the greatest hits of the seabed are a "You Shook Me All Night Long" and a successful "If You Want Blood" . Apparently, low sound frequencies attract sharks and riffs of Angus Young have proved very effective to calm the sharks.
Although more research will continue becoming more reliable data and extensible to other shark species, this strategy may sound replacing traditional mechanisms to attract the sharks, for example, crude coconut shock holes under water or the dangerous smell bleeding fish, which just reassuring alter their behavior.
Do not discuss the work being done by scientists, but I wonder if the sensation caused by these low frequencies in sharks is quiet or, conversely, stunning. In any case, if you sail beyond the shores of the Internet, do not forget to bring the discography of AC / DC and a good PA system to make it stop. Who knows, maybe in a few years, fishermen use "Highway To Hell" for fishing.
I FOUND THIS ARTICLE KIND OF FUNNY, SO I SURF THE WEB LOOKING FOR A MORE SCIENTIFIC REGARD ON THE MATTER, BUT THE ONLY THING I FOUND WAS THIS:
Great White Sharks Love AC/DC, Research Shows By Lenni Rosenblum Fri., Jun. 3 2011 at 8:00 AM
Not only do hard rockers find the music of AC/DC to be soothing, but according to a new study, it turns out that great white sharks do as well, according to NME.
Australian scientists have concluded that the behavior of great whites was affected in different ways when different kinds of music was played in the water around them.
When a diver played the music of AC/DC, the sharks' behavior became "more investigative, more inquisitive, and a lot less aggressive," said Matt Waller, a chartered boat operator. The sharks especially liked "You Shook Me All Night Long," Waller said.
The most interesting aspect of these findings is that sharks don't have ears, which means they were likely reacting to the vibrations and frequencies of the music. I wonder how the sharks would have reacted if the divers played Rebecca Black's "Friday" instead of AC/DC tracks.
SO, I GUESS WE'LL HAVE TO BELIEVE THIS. HERE'S ANOTHER SHORT PIECE FOUND ON SHARK'S STRANGE BEHAVIOUR.
Michele Norris speaks with Dorien Schroeder, a team leader with Ocean's Research, who lived a Jaws-like moment when a great white jumped on deck of her team's research boat after they threw fish into the water to lure sharks closer. This all happened off the coast of South Africa.
Schroeder says the shark was three meters and it managed to curl up in the back part of the board, seemingly unharmed.
The research team released the shark back in the water and it swam away.
