[edit] Information

-- Also aired as "Hunters of the Deep" in NatGeo UK -- Go on an action packed, hi-tech fishing expedition with the Sea Strikers. When the ocean's top predators strike, their prey doesn't even know what hit them! NGC dives into the attack strategies that sea hunters employ to deliver killer blows. Biologists use an high-speed underwater camera to capture the hunting techniques of the goliath grouper, barracuda, bonito and bull shark, and provides also never-before-seen footage of the feeding habits of the ocean's other top predators — mackerel, mahi mahi, wahoo, tuna and billfish. Goliath groupers use a powerful hunting technique called "suction feeding" to vacuum their prey. Barracuda and bonitos hunt by "ram feeding," slamming into unsuspecting fish for a headfirst feast. Bull sharks, the "biters," have a taste for other predators like bonitos. Biologists Steve Huskey and Nicolai Konow, and underwater cameraman Andy Casagrande embark on a high-tech fishing expedition to capture the hunting techniques of some of the oceans top predators using a slow motion camera that produces breathtaking images. Their mission: to record and analyse the hunting techniques of the goliath grouper, barracuda, bonito and bull shark. Computers use this stunning new footage to measure the attack speed of these hunters, revealing what happens in just the blink of an eye. Follow this all-star crew of fish fanatics and see just how fast these predators really are.
