Interesting article!

But I did notice one inaccuracy in this bit of text from the article: "Because many of the tagged sharks were too young, scientists ruled out the possibility that it was some kind of mating ritual and they weren't trying to evade hunters because "there's nothing that eats a blue shark," Campagna said."

When I lived out West, there were quite a few LARGE Mako Sharks caught that had smaller Blue Sharks in their digestive tracts, so that statement I quoted is false, and/or incorrect! But, other than that, a good article.

I believe what Dr Campana meant was that there is no genus other than shark,(including Blues themselves,Makos and Great Whites and probably others)which actually eat Blue Sharks. I know that he is very much aware of these facts. Unfortunately, the manner in which the reporter wrote the article leads one to believe that Blues have no enemies at all which, as we all know, is untrue. Regards.....
