Today in Shark News

A daily dose of shark news.

For the second time in two months a great white shark was hooked on a Southern California pier, and for the second time a marine biologist working on the pier persuaded the angler to cut the line rather than attempt to haul the predator out of the water. Eric Martin, director of the Roundhouse Marine Studies Lab and Aquarium at the end of the Manhattan Beach Pier, said the shark hooked Tuesday afternoon (pictured in this story) was 8 to 9 feet long. The angler had been fishing for bat rays and at first wanted to haul up his amazing catch.
