Sharks are highly efficient predators, and a critical part of the ocean ecosystem. But sometimes they attack humans.

How do sharks sense their world? Why do they bite us? And can scientists find a way to deter shark attacks? Filmed in Australia and the US, Why Sharks Attack takes a scientific look at one of our greatest fears. Produced by Prospero Productions in Association with SeaLight Pictures.
