Amazing Video Recorded by a Homemade Torpedo Camera

I picked up the following video of off Krulwich Wonders, a science blog by NPR's Robert Krulwich. He doesn't ruin the surprise on his post, so I won't either. Mark Peters and his friends headed 20 miles west of Santa Cruz on August 6 to catch—and get video of catching—some albacore. Peters brought a homemade plastic torpedo housing with a GoPro inside to capture underwater video. He ended up with some pretty amazing footage that had little to do with tuna.
