Shark uw swimming to camera

Thanks to media hype like Jaws and Finding Nemo, white sharks are the ocean's most iconic and feared fish. But we know surprisingly little about them.

Much of what we think we know about great white sharks simply isn’t true. They aren’t mindless killers, they aren’t always loners, and they are much smarter than scientists gave them credit in the past.

Meeting a great white shark in the wild is nothing like you expect it would be. At first glance, it’s not the zeppelin beast we’ve come to expect from a thousand TV shows. It’s portly, bordering on fat, like an overstuffed sausage. The world’s greatest predator is little more than a slack-jawed buffoon.

"Welcome to Gansbaai the Great Gold shark capital of the world!! We currently experience incredible diving interaction with Bronze whaler/copper sharks, a near threatened species more associated with the sardine run and small pelagic fish species here in SA! Such beautiful colouration to them, stunning sharks". –Ali Towner – local Marine Biologist

The diversity of sharks is just amazing

White sharks (Carcharodon carcharias) are migratory, apex predators, which have undergone significant population declines. We have to understand the shark ecology to ensure our management strategies are effective.

winter sharks in gansbaai

Gansbaai in South Africa is the only place in the world where you can safely go cage diving with Great White Sharks all year round. And believe it or not, the winter season is the best time to do this bucket list adventure.

The shark's ability to inflict killer damage on anything it grabs, however, probably is due to saw-like teeth and not the amount of bite force, the study researchers say. Once a great white clamps down on a prey with its razor-sharp teeth, the shark often shakes the catch from side to side to initiate a sawing action. The jaws work like a set of pliers, where pliers with long handles would let you grab an item with more force than pliers with short handles.
