Is Wrestling Sharks In Your Job Profile?

It takes a certain kind of person to willingly jump into a tuna pen 120 miles offshore, wrestle deadly sharks out with their bare hands and live to tell the tale - but for South Australia's tuna fishermen, it's all in a day's work.

The mighty Southern Ocean has long been a shipping graveyard, with monstrous waves powering across the remote seascape.
