Vertical Movements and Patterns in Diving Behavior of Whale Sharks as Revealed by Pop-Up Satellite Tags in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico

Fig 6

Dynamic patterns of vertical movement during four week-long periods of the track of Shark 10.

Variable patterns can be observed including: (A) reverse diel vertical migration; (B) crepuscular deep dives; (C) extended periods of low frequency oscillations at depth; and (D) near surface high frequency vertical oscillations. Vertical grey bars indicate nighttime. The recovered PSAT provided measurements at 30 second intervals.
