To promote the upcoming new season of “Shark Men” (formerly known as “Expedition: Great White”), National Geographic has posted multiple full episodes, available in HD, of the show to their YouTube channel.
The episodes available include:
The series follows Dr. Michael Domeier and a team of fishermen and researchers who catch great white sharks and tag them with SPOT (Smart Position or Temperature Transmitting) tags before releasing them.
The tagging program documented by “Shark Men” has been the subject of another recent news story regarding “infighting” among shark researchers, according to an article posted by SantaCruz.com.
Photos have been recently circulated of a white shark, nicknamed “Junior,” who was tagged by Domeier’s team in 2009 at the Farallones Marine Sanctuary. The selected photos show an injury to the shark, which some are claiming might be the result of a mishap at the hands of the research team while others argue that the injury is unrelated and could be the result of a bite from another white shark.
New episodes of “Shark Men” start Sunday, April 10 at 9PM with two back-to-back episodes.
