Expedition Great White

Expedition Great White
A hundred sixty miles off the coast of Baja California, a team of world-class anglers will land one of the most challenging fish imaginable: the great white shark. Unlike any other catch ever attempted, they'll lift an SUV-sized shark onto a platform, mount a long-lasting tracking tag by hand, take measurements and DNA samples, and release it unharmed. Marine biologist Dr. Michael Domeier helps uncover how this predator lives, with the ultimate goal of protecting this endangered species.
