Suctacean

“A team used GPS technology and suction cups to track how the giant mammals respond when a vessel is barreling toward them. … Blue whales, instead of diving sharply, responded to approaching ships by descending gradually at a rate of just over a foot and a half (0.5 meter) per second, and did not try swimming to one side.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/05/11/us-usa-whales-ships-idUKKBN0NW28820150511)

Herr Heisenberg once again explains that by encrusting a whale with suction cups you also slightly destroy its gliding agility and usually placid nature.
