Very cool! I wonder how long it will operate before it quits working. They did not mention anything about batteries or anything.
I could see an avid fisherman enjoying his fishing trip and then... "look hun, a robot fish" says the fisherman, the wifes smiles and says "wonder what those taste like"300g + 240g in wall build! - Follow Here

I agree! Very cool! But I wish these little articles would have just a bit more info.
How long do the batteries last? Are they easy to retrieve? Do the robot fish add to pollution (5 won't, but if they make more of them...) if they break down in the ocean? Why do they need to look like a fish? Won't that attract predators (mauling them) moreso than if they looked like something none-edible?55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos

Kool article! Ive seen this guy swimming around on youtube before, pretty impressive looking how it swims. However, what happens when that 10 million dollar recon-fish gets eaten by a shark?

It becomes a 10 million dollar study on the internal organs of a shark.No matter how much I learn or know I'm still gonna be a NOOB, but that doesn't mean I'm an idiot!

Yeah it is a bit lacking extra information. I'll keep an eye out and see if I come across any more.
I find it amazing the things people come up with to tryFish are friends, not an expendable entertainment device!
