Subject: Detection of buried fish by hammerhead sharks

I have recently seen a video which showed hammerhead sharks preying on
flatfish which had buried themselves in the sand. The narrator said that the
sharks were able to locate buried fish by detecting electrical impulses made
by their prey.

Does anybody out there know of any published sources which describe this
behaviour, or the electrosensory organs of hammerhead sharks?
