Great Hammerhead Shark - Close Encounter

published 11 years ago by George C. Schellenger

Shark Task Force Executive Producer, George C. Schellenger, takes us behind the scenes as he encounters a Great Hammerhead at close range. On a recent trip to the Bahamas he came eye-to-eye with this alien-looking fish - and he swam away with new passion to protect all sharks. This comes as countries at a UN meeting reject a proposal to protect Hammerheads. Sharks in this category may have dropped 85% or more, due to overfishing and the demand for the Hammerhead's fins.
