In the remote waters of New Zealand’s Shadowland, government divers are threatened by mysterious Sevengill Sharks. Marine Scientist Jenny Oliver is attacked by one of these sharks – and returns to the scene with shark researcher and dive team member Kina Scollay.
Armed with the latest technology, can they learn enough about these sharks to keep themselves – and the rest of the government dive team – safe? Kina adapts the tagging and photo ID systems he uses on Great Whites to understand the nature of these un-studied sharks.
Could these sharks be learning to hunt the divers? Do they work together, in a pack?
