International Ocean Film Festival presents 700 Sharks

Over 700 sharks come to feast in a wild frenzy, all caught on beautiful footage

The reef of the Fakarava Atoll encloses a rich ecosystem designated by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve.

A team of international scientists have identified this reef as the location of a unique occurrence on the day of the June full moon when thousands of Camouflage Grouper come to spawn attracting 700 Grey Sharks.

The team meticulously plans a study that includes night diving and multiple underwater camera placements.
