    Fans of the Discovery Channel may already be familiar with Shark Week but for those who don't know, here are a few reasons as to why you need to set your TV to record for the next time it comes around; which it most definitely will being the Discovery Channel's longest ever running television stunt to date.

    Sharks in general are hunted, feared, threatened and misunderstood by mankind.  Perhaps being immortalised as the blood thirsty antagonist in Steven Spielberg's JAWS didn't help their tainted reputation that they still carry around almost 40 years on.
    But considering that these fascinating creatures have inhabited our planet since pre-historic times and have a rightful if not highly important role in the ocean food chain, perhaps there is a thing or two we could learn in order to live together as nature intended.

    Switch on this week and get to know the facts from extensive marine studies and form your own opinion on sharks.  Take care and know the risks of where you decide to swim, listen to the experts, respect the marine life, stay safe and avoid dangerous situations at all costs.
