    If the waters around the UK and Ireland get warmer because of global warming will we see great white sharks (or megs)?

    Very few places in the world have numbers of great whites so that you'd start to notice them. Fishermen and surfers are the front line and they tend to claim any shark is a great white when in fact its probably a basking shark or piece of driftwood.

    Guadalupe, Gansbaai, South/West Australia (near Adelaide and Perth) are the main hotspots.

    Unless there's a seal colony nearby in which case they might start feeding there regularly.

    Yes, rare in Europe. I went swimming off the coast of Liguria, Italy about 15 years ago and cut my foot on a rock. The next week there was a report of a great white shark being spotted off the coast of Liguria.

    https://www.touristmaker.com/blog/are-there-dangerous-sharks-in-europe/

    Many of the great white shark warning signals come from the Adriatic and Ligurian Sea. It is believed that during the hot summer months, searching for cooler seawaters, great white sharks go north, where temperatures are more favorable.

    For this reason the probability of encountering a great white shark at the height of the summer season is slightly higher in the Adriatic and Ligurian Sea in comparison with other parts of the Mediterranean basin.


    Given that great white sharks love cool seawaters, it is not surprising that they can be found in Northern Europe, along the coasts of Britain, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and more rarely in the Baltic Sea.

    As a whole, great white sharks have an extremely huge area of distribution, and this is mainly because they are great travelers.

    It is not uncommon a shark to cross the distance between the United States and Europe and then to be detected along the coast of Australia

    Expedition Unknown: Megalodon
    AIRS: Sunday, July 28, 8 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “Five times bigger than a T. Rex, with jaws capable of crushing a tank, the Megalodon was the ultimate apex predator. This 60-ton mega-shark ruled the world’s oceans for nearly 20 million years. Then, suddenly, it vanished. So how did the king of the deep lose his throne? Paleontologists are using fossilized teeth — the only surviving evidence of the Megalodon — to take a bite out of the mystery of its disappearance. These prehistoric dental records may hold the key to when this monster shark went extinct and why. Meanwhile, marine biologists are studying the Megalodon’s modern shark descendants to understand what caused its demise. What they’ve uncovered is a deep sea Game of Thrones that pitted one species against another in a battle for dominance. Josh is diving into shark-infested waters to unravel one of the oceans greatest mysteries: what happened to the mighty Meg?”

    Sharks of the Badlands
    AIRS: Monday, July 29, 8 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “White sharks are infiltrating the waters off Cape Cod. This year alone a record 150 white sharks were recorded off the coast, and for the first time in 80 years, a white shark attack turned fatal. Greg Skomal teams up with Andy Casagrande and shark expert Kina Scollay in New Zealand to test the most exciting, cutting-edge new technology for shark detecting surveillance. If all goes well, they hope to bring it back to Cape Cod to make the water safe again.”

    Legend of Deep Blue
    AIRS: Monday, July 29, 9 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “Shark experts Brandon McMillan and Jimi Partington head back to Guadalupe Island to search the depths for Deep Blue. Believed to be the largest great white shark in the world, Deep Blue, measures almost 21 feet long and over 2 and a half tons. If they can locate her, they might be able to shed some light on the mysteries of these deep-sea mega sharks.”

    Air Jaws Strikes Back
    AIRS: Tuesday, July 30, 10 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “Air Jaws returns as shark expert Chris Fallows leads a team of researchers into a newly discovered shark vs. seal battleground at the base of a 200-foot cliff. Here a deadly game of life and death plays out in waist deep water. As the great whites stalk the seal colony, the seals have learned to team up and mount counter attacks against the predators. And for the first time, these extraordinary predatory events are captured in their entirety by the researchers.”

    Extinct or Alive: The Lost Shark
    AIRS: Wednesday, July 31, 8 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “Wildlife biologist and animal tracker Forrest Galante embark on a mission to the Indian Ocean to search for the supposedly extinct Pondicherry shark. This rare species was last seen in the 1970s, but recent photos of unidentified sharks around Sri Lanka and the Maldives lead many to believe it could still be alive. Along with his wife Jessica, a team of wildlife experts and filmmakers, Forest dives into an untamed wilderness to track down this amazing shark. But because of its ability to osmoregulate, meaning it can swim in fresh or saltacoer, Forrest must cover tons of ground — including deep ocean, shallow coral reefs, underwater caves, and even jungle rivers. Armed with cutting edge technology including a 3D structure scanner and genetic testing, Forrest’s team leaves no stone unturned in their quest to validate whether or not the photos of a strange shark swimming in the Indian Ocean are Pondicherry. If they can prove it’s still alive, it will be removed off the extinct species list, and they can redouble their efforts to study and protect the Pondicherry’s ongoing existence.”

    Return to Shark Island
    AIRS: Thursday, Aug. 1, 8 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “With the help of shark scientist Dr. Craig O’Connell, and the confirmed cooperation of Réunion’s newly established CRA Shark Protection Program, Return to Shark Island investigates the ongoing shark crisis that is threatening to bring this former island paradise to its knees and sets out to answer the critical questions: Have the islanders’ worst fears come true? Is this so-called ‘spike’ in shark attacks now the new normal? Why have Bull Sharks, rarely seen before 2011 on the populous west coast of the island, now apparently made it their home and hunting ground? Why despite all the measures taken by the authorities are people still dying and crucially, what, if anything, can be done about it?”

    Great White Kill Zone: Guadalupe
    AIRS: Thursday, Aug. 1, 9 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “150 miles off the coast of Baja, Calif., Guadalupe Island is a notorious hot spot for Great White sharks. Here to target the abundant seal population, Great Whites are silent hunters, stalking their prey and killing with a surprise attack. But the waters surrounding Guadalupe Island are crystal clear. So how do they do it? At other white shark hot spots around the world there is always a kill zone — a place where more predation events occur. But here in Guadalupe, an attack has never been witnessed. Now, a team of experts led by Dr. Yannis Papastamatiou and Melissa Marquez, are setting out to record never before seen white shark hunting behaviors. With the help of cutting-edge technology and three kinds of specialist cameras, they aim to discover the location of the Guadalupe Kill Zone.”

    Isle of Jaws: Blood Brothers
    AIRS: Friday, Aug. 2, 8 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “An intrepid team of shark explorers venture out for a third year to the famed Isle of Jaws, a remote island off the West Australian coast. Two great white shark males, believed to be brothers, are at the heart of an intriguing mystery — do these animals recognize, and prefer to live and hunt with, a blood relative? The team endures a runaway submersible, face-to-jaws encounters, and deploys a mini-ROV camera dubbed “The Guppy” that provides some of the most chilling close-up visuals yet. By using the latest in tracking technology, a major mystery is finally solved.”

    Andrew Mayne: Ghost Diver
    AIRS: Friday, Aug. 2, 9 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “Master illusionist, author, and inventor Andrew Mayne is going to attempt to create the first-of-its-kind SHARK SUIT to overcome the senses of a great white shark and make him invisible to the world’s most perfect predator… He teams up with underwater cameraman Andy Casagrande and Dr. Neil Hammerschlag on a global quest to uncover the power of the great white’s predation senses — all to prepare him for the ultimate test — putting himself in the middle of a great white frenzy in Australia. Will it work? Andrew’s life depends on it.”

    I Was Prey: Shark Week
    AIRS: Friday, Aug. 2, 10 p.m. ET/PT

    OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: “In the Pacific Ocean, danger lurks just below the surface. Along the sundrenched coast of Southern California, single mother Leeanne Ericson is enjoying a relaxing day at the beach when she’s confronted with her worst nightmare — a giant Great White shark that grabs her leg and drags her under the water. Off the rugged northern coast of Hawaii, spearfisherman Braxton Rocha is ambushed by a Tiger Shark so massive it could easily swallow him whole. In the wake of these vicious attacks, both victims must fight through their injuries and the unforgiving elements to reach safety before it’s too late.”

    Watched The Meg the other day, and I liked it. Wasn't too bad, just very predictable and full of cliches and poor dialogue.
