Neil and bull shark - CREDIT: Emma Smith/333productions
While Neil has probably tagged thousands of sharks for research - he has never tagged a bull this large, well over 1,000lbs - this is about as large as they get. The shark was hooked in the Florida Keys - what a sight it must have been.

Came across this video featuring the freediver recovery vest - very cool concept. Vest activates based on variables (time / depth) inputted by diver. There is also a safety feature that activates if the computer notices that you have surfaced and begin to sink again (after 10 secs) - avoid shallow water blackout. Only catch - device costs approx. $3,000. The vest is developed by Ocean Safety Systems.
