World-class anglers and a renowned shark scientist spend two months at sea studying great white sharks in the wild. The crew, which includes actor Paul Walker and expedition leader Chris Fischer (the former host of ``Offshore Adventures''), uses a specially modified hydraulic cradle to lift the massive creatures out of the water. They then mount each one with a tracking tag and take measurements and DNA samples, all while pumping water into its mouth to keep it alive. After a harried 20 minutes, the sharks are released unharmed.
