"VOX" Levels a Valid Critique of Discovery's "Shark Week"

As much as we love Shark Week; the folks at VOX do have some very valid criticisms (video commentary):

From their YouTube page:

"Shark Week used to be educational. Now it's filled with fake documentaries about "Megalodon" and "Submarine." Here's what you need to know before you watch The Discovery Channel series."

2014 Great White Sharks off Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard!

2014 Nantucket Great White Shark Breaching

Fisherman Sean Cavanaugh was 100 miles off Nantucket when captured this video of a Great White Shark breaching several times, completely in the air, in a dramatic type of jump most are only familiar with because of "Shark Week:" footage originating in South Africa.

The crew of "The High C's" thinks the shark, estimated to be 15 to 18 feet long, may have ended up out of the water after a few high-speed but failed attacks on a marlin.

"You could see the shark's mouth wide open, teeth and everything!"

The video below is part of a larger story at NBC affiliate 7 News WHDH in Boston

This is not the first great white shark sighting in the Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket area.
Over the 4th of July Weekend 2014, a 14 foot female Great White was spotted in 12 feet of water off Nauset Beach in Orleans. The Boston Globe has a phenomenal story HERE but the data and images are actually come from the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy whose published mission is to "Support scientific research, improve public safety, and educate the community, to inspire conservation of Atlantic White Sharks."

The team at Shark Video News is off to Nantucket this weekend with Captian Bart and his RIB Whiskey Tango to explore a near surface sandbar popular with seals about halfway between Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket - Stay tuned!

The Cape May Great White Shark - "HE TOOK OUR CHUMBAG"!

It's easy to laugh at this guy's reaction but anyone who's been this close to a great white, especially as a surprise in an area you weren't otherwise expecting to find one, knows how easy it is to get this excited!

I have a feeling that "Chumbag" is this boat's new name and someone in Cape May needs to get to the screenprinter ASAP to get some "He took our chumbag" t-shirts made.

Here is the video making the rounds today, courtesy of NBC Philly via PennLive:

Bull Sharks of the Potomac River

Although it's debatable by locals as to whether this is the freshwater Potamac or the Chesapeake Bay, the presence of "Bull Sharks in the Potomac River" is not as rare you one might think.

In 2010 and again in 2013, Bull Sharks of up to 8 feet were netted in the Potomac near Cornfield Harbor and Point Lookout State Park.

Although local media may sensationalize these events, party because National Geographic as dubbed the Bull Shark "the most dangerous shark in the world"  and have investigated global cases of freshwater shark attacks.

SharkSavers actually has some great information about how sharks actually survive in fresh water.

15 Foot Tiger Shark Caught in Drum Lines is Shot to Death and Dumped at Sea.

Despite what some have claimed is opposed by 80% of locals, the practice of catch-and-kill at the Australian government's request will proceed. Although the broadcaster refers to the weapon used to kill the shark as a shotgun, experts have noted that it was actually a .22 which may in fact be inhumane simply due to it's lack of power to cleanly kill the shark.
