Typical hype/nonsense from the news/advertising/NatGeo.

If you want to know something about the seperate populations of white sharks on the Pacific coast, look at real science. These people tagged 200 GWS and tracked them for years. There are distinct populations in N. Cal, Guadalupe Is and some of the former do come to Malibu area to give birth etc.
