A hundred sixty miles off the coast of Baja California, a team of
world-class anglers, led by Costa pro Chris Fischer, 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... all within minutes. Marine biologist
Dr. Michael Domeier uses advanced tracking devices to help uncover how
this predator lives, with the ultimate goal of conserving and protecting
this endangered species.
