Sharks and Lights

Recommended Posts

I have always been under the impression that constant lights (video) do not appeal to sharks but I may be wrong and I was looking for any research on the subject

 

I am quite positive that strobes are almost invisible to sharks that are almost blind as I have never seen a reaction but for video lights I have always find marine life to react in some ways and therefore always excluded sharks and video lights as a combination

 

Recently though I have seen some some footage of sharks shot with video lights so I am particularly curious about it

 

Has anyone any evidence empirical or scientific to understand more about this?

Interceptor,

 

No data about lights.

 

I have seen hammerheads spooked by bubbles. On open circuit, an exhale made them disappear in the Galapagos - I was told that bubbles may represent a threat display.
