The Monterey Bay Aquarium is not planning to collect any great white sharks this year. The "Santa Cruz Sentinel" say the aquarium is taking a break due to a push by conservationists to place the great white on the state and federal endangered species list. A 2011 study from UC Davis show only 219 great white sharks live off of the Central Coast. Aquarium officials say they still plan to do tagging research.
