Expedition Great White

Synopsis: A hundred sixty miles off the coast of Baja California, a team of world-class anglers will land one of the most challenging fish imaginable: the great white shark. Unlike any other catch ever attempted, they'll lift an SUV-sized shark onto a platform, mount a long-lasting tracking tag by hand, take measurements and DNA samples, and release it unharmed... all within minutes. Marine biologist Dr. Michael Domeier uses advanced tracking devices to help uncover how this predator lives, with the ultimate goal of conserving and protecting this endangered species.

That's disappointing.

NARRATOR:
The

Great White.

Over 10 million years old.

And still a mystery.

To understand it,

you've got to catch it.

BRETT:
That's

a hooked shark.

DOMEIER:
Wow,

look at that.

NARRATOR:
Expert anglers

Chris Fischer and Brett

McBride Team up with

renowned scientist Doctor

Michael Domeier.

Their mission - to tag

and track a rare and

vulnerable predator.

CHRIS:
Oh, that's

a bigger one.

DOMEIER:
We're gonna

go big or go home.

NARRATOR:
They'll need an

unmatched mix of skills...

CHRIS:
Drop the cradle.

NARRATOR:

Tools...and guts.

CHRIS:
Up, up.

Expedition Great White 1x01

Feeding Frenzy

DOMEIER:
Here it is.

Here it comes.

Coming aggressive.

Wants it.

Wants it.

GROUP:
OOHHHH.....

CHRIS:
That was the right

angle and everything.

DOMEIER:
Yeah

she wanted it.

She quickened a

little bit there.

She's gonna eat it.

PAUL:
Yeah, I

don't see her.

DOMEIER:
She's looking

for the bait up by the

float because that's

normally where it is.

CHRIS:
Coming our way,

coming our way, yep.

JODY:
High.

Very high.

DOMEIER:
OOHH

there it is, wow.

Come on baby.

Take it.

CREW:
Getting a nibble?

There he is.

DOMEIER:
I'm bit,

guys, bit, bit, bit.

PAUL:
Fish on!

Fish on!

GROUP:
Fish on.

DOMEIER:
It came off

PAUL:
ARRGGG DOMEIER: No

he's still there.

He's still there.

CREW:
Good, good, good.

There he goes.

DOMEIER:
Shark.

It's a big one.

Two balls down.

PAUL:
Yeah, buddy.

There she goes.

DOMEIER:
She's got

two floats down.

WHITEY:
Ha, ha,

ha, yeah baby.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

NARRATOR:
With the great

white hooked on the line -

Doctor Michael Domeier

stays aboard the mother

ship.....

Shark Patrol.

While Chris and Brett lead

the chase

to wrangle the giant,

and bring it back.

CHRIS:
So it's holding

down a 50-pound ball right

now.

NARRATOR:
It was just a

few hours earlier that the

team tagged and released

their sixth great white.

CHRIS:
Look at its eye.

Holy cow.

NARRATOR:
15 feet long,

this male named Seamus has

the latest long-term

tracking device secured to

his dorsal fin.

CHRIS:
All the tags

are on Doctor Domeier?

Domeier:
That tag's

on really good.

NARRATOR:
They record

every detail of the shark

and secure new long-term

satellite tags to track

its movements for

up to 6 years.

CHRIS:
Adios amigo.

That's what I'm

talking about.

Nice job, Doc.

NARRATOR:
For Doctor

Michael Domeier,

the boat's hydraulic lift

sets their scientific

efforts apart

from the rest.

DOMEIER:
This ship can

pull the biggest adult

white shark we can

possibly catch right out

of the water.

Once that shark's

out of the water,

we can do things that have

never been done before.

NARRATOR:
On Seamus,

Doctor Domeier collects

his first blood sample

from an adult great white

male.

He can't draw it with a

needle so heollects it

from the hook wound.

DOMEIER:
Almost

got enough.

NARRATOR:
He then

analyzes the blood as an

important step to support

his suspicion that sharks

gather at this

island to breed.

DOMEIER:
The

concentration of the

reproductive hormones

are going to allow me to

determine if the white

sharks are mating at

Guadalupe Island or not.

NARRATOR:
If true, it

will be the first mating

site ever identified

for the species

DOMEIER:
The white blood

cells down there,

up here is just

the plasma part,

the part the

hormones will be in.

NARRATOR:
But Domeier

needs blood from mature

females to help prove his

theory - and so far -

no luck.

Could this newly hooked

great white be the one?

CREW:
You see that

son of a rippin?

Whoooff!
