Early in 2013 Dr Emmett Johnston and Dr Jonathan Houghton asked CATS to provide a CATS-Cam with integrated CATS-Diary for their Basking shark research in the north of Ireland.

The deployments of the CATS devices during spring and summer were a complete success and Jon and Emmett could get data and animal-borne camera footage that surpassed their expectations.

Attachment has been optimized in cooperation with the scientists and CATS on site, thus increasing the chances of obtaining useful data.
