HAVANA, Nov. 24th (PL) According to the online version of the local newspaper Invasor, Fernandez took the shark by the tail and in its belly he placed the device that emits signals when the animal surfaces, which is an unusual action that happened for the first time in the keys Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.
The action occurred during an expedition led by Cuban and US specialists to study and control sharks that inhabit the northern and southern coasts of Cuba.
Organized by the Marlin S.A. Nautical and Marinas Business Group, the Research Centers on Coastal Ecosystems of Cayo Coco and Marinas of the University of Havana, the action surprised the crew for the courage of Fernandez.
Fernandez, who is also a cameraman at Mundo Latino Studios in Cuba, performed a similar action offshore Havana, said the newspaper.
To accomplish the two actions, Fernandez was supported by the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium in Florida, in the United States, which fostered the placement of satellite transmitters in sharks and the development of the first experiment to transplant corals in Cuban reefs.
