    They managed to keep this young, great white alive 198 days in captivity. The previous record was only 16 days.

    I am curious as to what kind of electronic tag they affixed before setting the shark free. It seems to have included sensors measuring ocean depth (perhaps by atmospheric pressure) and temperature (perhaps by thermocouple). It would be very interesting to see what other sensors they had on board.
