About this book

The great white shark has been haunting the waters of the Mediterranean Sea since well before man dared to venture on the water. In 1996, the Italian Great White Shark Data Bank began collecting and recording encounters between great white sharks and boats, bathers, divers, fishermen and others from the Middle Ages to the present. This meticulously researched work presents the study's findings for the first time, releasing a trove of information on the great white's size, distribution, habitat, behavior, reproduction, diet, fisheries and attacks on humans. With 593 records of great white sharks from the entire sea, Mediterranean Great White Sharks represents the most complete and comprehensive study on the species in that region and constitutes a rich resource for historians, scientists, fishermen, and divers.
