Video: Satellite Study: Biggest Fish, Whale SharkVideo (1min 52sec): Satellite Study: Biggest Fish, Whale Shark.

The world's biggest fish is being studied in a tagging expedition by marine scientists in Kenya. Penny Tweedie reports.

Whale Sharks have been swimming in the tropical and temperate waters of the world since the time of the dinosaurs.

Whale Sharks grow up to 12 meters (9.8425197 feet) in length, have over 3,000 teeth, and can live for over 100 years.

Although they are sharks, they are not, as their name could suggest, cold blooded predators. Instead the filter feed small particles from the water through rake-like structures in their gills.
