Great white sharks - sighted, tagged and tracked

Scientists from DOC, NIWA, and the University of Auckland are building a unique picture of New Zealand's great white shark population. Data gathered from the tagging programme is improving our understanding of their habitat requirements, the size of the population, and migration patterns.

Dr Malcolm Francis talks about this project, which is jointly funded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation and the Department of Conservation.
