A SHARK WEEK special for Discovery Channel

JAWS STRIKES BACK makes history as shark experts Greg Skomal and Mauricio Hoyos and a team of engineers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution embark on a mission to find out how Guadalupe’s great whites hunt giant elephant seals at depth. Using a robot-sub fitted with 6 cameras they follow 4 great whites; Deep Blue, Lupita, Johnny, and Kimil to depths of 320feet for the first time. As the sharks close in on Guadalupe’s elephant seal colonies, the robot-sub records first time behavior of how the sharks stalk and attack their prey at depth.

Publicity

Jaws Strikes Back, tightly edited and legitimately suspenseful in the manner it’s constructed, is one of the best Shark Week shows I can immediately recall: it would almost be a must for those viewers seriously interested in the behavior of great white sharks. - Very Helpful Net
The footage they returned with is remarkable, the robotic pursuit proves the observation viability of the REMUS in future fieldwork. The SharkCam robot hunting attack bot remains an awesome use of time and money. - I Digital Times
Unprecedented footage - Mansfield Local
#1 non-sports telecast in all of television on transmission night - TV By The Numbers
Incredible footage of great white shark stalking and attacking a robot camera - The Telegraph
Today you made me feel the luckiest Mexican scientist in the world. Thank you for believing in me, for your professionalism, your knowledge and most of all for your valuable friendship! THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! - Mauricio Hoyos, Marine Biologist
Loved the shark cam! Huge potential! - Dr. Michael Heithaus Florida International University
