So what's a great white shark eat for lunch?
By Ben Adler
Monterey, CA – Whether it's the movie Jaws or all those Shark Week documentaries on TV, Americans are fascinated by the threatened yet misunderstood great white shark. The Monterey Bay Aquarium's newest guest is in its eighth week, and attendance is through the roof - up 25 percent over last year since the young male came to town. After going a week without eating - forcing the Aquarium to consider releasing it - the young male great white has settled in, eating 1-to-3 pounds of fish almost daily. So how, exactly, do you feed a great white shark in captivity? KAZU's Ben Adler takes a look.
