Following publication of the original article , the authors noticed the following errors in the citation of tables and figures under Results section and the captions of Figs. 6, 7 and 8:
In subsection, “Drag and stability”, the citation of Table 2 should be Table 1;
In subsequent section, “Whale shark (R. typus)”, the citation of Fig. 5A and B should be replaced by Fig. 6A and B;
In section, “Tiger shark (G. cuvier) (towed vs fixed)”, the citation of Fig. 6 should be replaced by Fig. 7; last sentence mention Fig. 7 should be replaced by Fig. 8; reference to Additional File 8 should be eliminated.
Figure 6 legend should be replaced by “Surging acceleration, depth and speed, A a 35 min Yo-Yo behaviour segment of a 8500 cm whale-shark, B detail of the section delimited by the black rectangle in A. Warmer colours in the spectrogram represent stronger signals, whereas cooler colours represent weaker signals.”
Figure 7 legend should be replaced by “Surging and swaying acceleration of a 230 cm tiger shark double-tagged with the i-Pilot A and an accelerometer/depth package attached to a pectoral fin B. Warmer colours represent stronger signals and cooler colours represent weaker signals. Lower panel represents the dive profile (m)”.
Figure 8 legend should read “Surging and swaying acceleration of a 230 cm tiger shark double tagged with i-Pilot A and accelerometer/depth package attached to a pectoral fin B. Warmer colours represent stronger signals and cooler colours represent weaker signals. Bottom panel represents the dive profile (m).
The original article  has been corrected.
