Long Description: 
From tropical seas to the cold waters of Alaska, sharks are BIG business in an "adrenaline" eco-tourism industry. Off Mexico's Guadeloupe Island, paying guests (including 5 and 7 year old siblings) come face to face with great whites. In the Bahamas and Australia, scuba divers pay big bucks to get up close and personal with tiger sharks. And in the cold waters of Alaska, intrepid entrepreneurs are scaring up new business by introducing divers to the rare salmon shark. Shark Business: Part II picks up where Part I left off - the nearly fatal attack on shark advocate Dr. Erich Ritter. This program features Ritter and a new team of dedicated researchers and diving operators who risk life and limb to study and scuba dive with big sharks.
