The Great Shark Chase

Production Details

Marine biologist and adventurer Monty Halls leads a scientific expedition following the annual Sardine Run which sees millions of sardines migrating 1000 kilometres along the east coast of South African to breed. It’s followed by thousands of sharks, whales and dolphins who feast on the easy pickings and Monty’s mission is to catch and tag as many sharks as possible.  Very little is known about the sharks that turn up for the run and the tags will help scientists determine where they go the rest of the year. Trouble is, it’s far from easy to tag a shark.

Monty is joined by shark expert Megan McCord and renowned wildlife cameraman Doug Allen as they chase the sardine shoals along the coast and brave wild seas in search of sharks.
