Although the white shark is one of the most popular marine animals, until a few years ago very little was known about its biology and behavior. Like most pelagic fish, white sharks are difficult to study because of their large size, the complexity of keeping them in captivity and the limitations of conducting scientific research at sea. Recently, in Mexico the existing information about this species was based on dead organisms, providing very little information about the behavior of live sharks. Although it was considered a rare species in Mexican coasts, recently Guadalupe Island has been considered as one of the most important white shark aggregation sites in the eastern Pacific.
