Scientists free a whale shark caught in a fishing net in Indonesia’s Cenderawasih Bay.

Conservation International have completed the first expedition to tag whale sharks with radio-frequency identification making them easier to track and film.

Whale sharks swimming into fishing nets has become a problem in the area as the sharks feed directly from the nets, sucking food through the holes. (see video at bottom)
