EXP 8: An SRC team member demonstrates proper technique for lowering the 40 pound weight off the swim platform. SRC uses a customized drumline rig which includes a baited circle hook on a fishing line that is attached to the weight with a swivel and rotating shackle. A rope also attaches a set of floats to the weight to mark its location. This configuration allows the shark that takes the bait to continue to swim in circles while hooked in order to stay oxygenated. PC: Josh Liberman
