Why do giant sharks live in shallow water?

By John Sepulvado

Moss Landing, CA – Okay, so the Jaws theme and KAZU's story on the Monterey Bay Aquarium's great white shark got KAZU's John Sepulvado thinking. There's one scene in that movie, where the skipper and the scientist are talking about the shark that's killing people. And the skipper says he'll help with the hunt, but, he adds, they're going to need a bigger boat.

Clearly, a shark that massive must come from the deepest, darkest place in the sea ... right? Well, not so fast....
