This comes as part of the second phase of a project to train Red Sea reserve researchers in tracking shark behavior via satellites.

Environmental sources told Al-Masry Al-Youm that the authority’s researchers, under the supervision of an international expert, successfully caught a shark and installed a sensitive device on its belly.

They returned it to the ocean to track it through satellites.

Nature reserve workers were also trained on installing the device, monitoring the behavior of different types of sharks and analyzing the data collected by sensors across different time periods, as the study extends for up to 18 months in three stages.
