Everyone knows by now of the versatile sports cameras by GoPro. People are capturing interesting videos with them across the spectrum of sports, day-to-day life, and even science.
Mark Peters went out fishing for Albacore Tuna west of Santa Monica, CA, and had made a clear torpedo casing to hold his GoPro camera beforehand. The contraption was lowered into the water beside their boat, and the cameras captured a magnificent sight: a pod of Pacific White Sided Dolphins.
This is a fun video, even if it has been questioned as being a hoax . If you want to skip the fishing, jump ahead to 1:12 to watch.
I’ll be posting more about GoPro and their initiative to work with scientists in the weeks ahead.
