Alaska’s Deadly Sharks | Alaska’s Deadliest


NARRATOR: Unlike their cousins,
the great white sharks, salmon sharks hunt in packs. Together, they push the
salmon against the fjord wall, then drive them
towards the surface, cutting off escape routes. The shark misses on
the first strike. But endurance is its specialty. Tight circles around
the fleeing salmon should tire the prey out. At least, that’s the plan. Another miss. He dispenses with the gymnastics
and goes for hot pursuit. Salmon shark have
excellent eyesight. Eyes are positioned far forward,
enabling sharp binocular vision to locate their prey, an
enormous advantage for closing in on small, fast salmon. Traveling at speeds up
to 50 miles per hour, they’re one of the biggest and
fastest fish on the planet. Once the feeding
begins, the sharks are relentless,
gorging themselves in the salmon-packed waters. Like wolves, a
group of sharks all strike at once, devouring
everything in their path, storing energy for reproduction,
migration, and leaner days.

  4. Salmon have to deal with sharks bears and other predators, and are saltwater and fresh water fish, AND have to swim UP Stream to mate and lay eggs????

  5. A most excellent shark! They probably have one of the highest percentage rates of prey take downs in the animal kingdom.

  7. Was this is freshwater? I know some sharks, like bull sharks, can live in freshwater, so I wondered if Salmon sharks could.
