Bremer Canyon - GWS Hotspot?


Now, watch this.
Yes it's old and a tad sensationalistic, but I found it absolutely riveting.
Story here and here, expedition log here, Bremer Canyon here and here!

The claim (at the end of the second film) that the attacking gws was angry at people because it had recently been hooked -- is surprising. ...More info needed.

One would presume there was bait in the water and it didn't know what to try to eat.

Agree - still, a really feisty fella! :)

Other than that, a real nice classical doco - so refreshing after all that cheap stunt work with Sharks that is being served to the populace!

First time I've been excited by a shark film since christ knows when, it looks very interesting, any idea when it's out?

DaShark said...

Indeed: real old school with all the required time, means, scientific support etc!

The way I see it it was aired on ABC one year ago - dunno where else, maybe ask the film maker?

That's what I like about it, it has the old time adventure aspect which as you know, is my thing indeed! I'll look into it mate and if I find out I'll let you know

Hi guys..I made the Bremer aired in Australia on 3rd November 2013. Its airing again in Oz on 20th of this month. Its also about to air on Smithsonian in the US.
Read the info about why the shark belted our boat on my website .. it had just been hooked by another boat fishing nearby
Cheers for enjoying..part 2 is coming!

Congratulations Dave, this really looks like an excellent piece of work, head & shoulders above the crap they feed us on Shark Week!

Unfortunately, most of us will never get to see it on television - are you planning to sell it on DVD or the like?

+1 me onto Mike's comment, it looks great and I would love to see it!

Great stuff, Dave -- and I stand corrected. But where on your website is the discussion of this gws' bad mood?

Is that a nervous shark C.cautus @ 1.20 on your show reel?
