Who likes heavy metal? Sharks, that’s who (VIDEO)

Who likes heavy metal? Sharks, that’s who (VIDEO)Recently a documentary film crew working on behalf of Discovery Channel realized that blasting the hard stuff through an underwater speaker was quite possibly the best way to attract sharks. It seems that the low, rumbling frequencies of death metal actually mimic the sounds of struggling fish.

The crew, in an attempt to shoot the 16-foot, 1.6 ton lady-beast, submerged a speaker to woo her attention. They didn’t catch the eye (and ears) of Joan, but they did manage to snag two other Great Whites—one 12 feet long. It seems that sharks are able to 'hear' by tuning into subtle vibrations in the water, and the sludging sounds of death metal are almost a perfect match to a school of struggling feeder fish.

According to The Independent: “It's an odd tactic, but one that's apparently well-known by shark hunters.” One of these hunters includes Australian tour operator Matt Waller, who realized that AC/DC records could cause sharks to “change their behavior.”
