2002 – The cage was deployed in the frozen Saguenay Fjord by Jeffrey Gallant and John Batt (GEERG) during Operation Skalugsuak II near the village of Rivière-Éternité, Québec. The cage was deployed as a preventive measure since no one had yet dove with a freeswimming Greenland shark. The cage was also on site during Operation Skalugsuak I at La Baie (Québec) in 2001, but it was not deployed under the ice.
