The show shark wranglers catches sharks to do "research" on them by fishing for the sharks. While fishing for the sharks they tend to get tangled around the anchor line of the ship or the shark gets wrapped up in the line while it's becoming stressed out. Then when the shark is on the lift of the ship it is out of the water for up to 20 minutes and sometimes longer. This can and does sometimes result in the death of the shark.

      This is NOT research but a crude show to feed sensationalism and commerce! All shark research should be aimed at helping these magnificent species to survive, besides learning more about them, and should NEVER endanger, harm, or kill a shark!

      I was horrified to see how these sharks were tormented on the pretense of gathering data "so they say" when it is actually giving these sport fishermen the thrill of the hunt

      These gentlemen are not shark experts they are sport fishermen going out everyday and catching these sharks for their own self gain and using "Conservation" as an excuse because it is illegal to catch Great White Sharks
