Swarming Gray Reef Sharks off Bikini Atoll

NUCLEAR SHARKS FOR DISCOVERY CHANNEL SHARK WEEK 2016

Philippe Cousteau, and his wife Ashlan Gorse Cousteau travel to the Bikini Atoll to explore a marine environment destroyed by nuclear testing during the Cold War. The nuclear devices detonated across the atoll vaporized two islands and destroyed every living thing.  Remarkably, 70 years later, nature has proved resilient and restored the marine ecosystem, re-populating the atoll with reef sharks.   But since reef sharks are considered non-migratory, where did they come from? How did they re-populate these remote atolls?  The team tags 17 sharks with GPS satellite tags and discovers that sharks do indeed migrate atoll-to-atoll.  Unfortunately and unexpectedly, the team also uncovers an illegal fishing fleet taking sharks from inside one of the largest shark sanctuaries in the Pacific.
