The King of the Sharks

Record #:
There are 436 species of sharks swimming in the world's oceans. One stands out even among the list of predators -- the great white. Sightings in North Carolina's coastal waters are rare, but in the last decade several large great whites have been captured on video. No attack has ever been documented. In 1984, a one-ton great white was caught by a Morehead City commercial fisherman. This is the largest shark ever caught in coastal waters. Pusser discusses this seasonal visitor to the North Carolina's shores.
