What Happens On Shark Week If They Can’t Find Any Sharks? Returning Host Forrest Galante Opens Up About The ‘Pressure To Perform’


Forrest Galante in Shark Week 2024


Discovery’s annual Shark Week is going strong in the 2024 TV schedule, and wildlife biologist Forrest Galante was back this year for the newest edition of Alien Sharks. This time, he was on the search for the extremely rare Japanese angel shark. It was a big task to try and accomplish in a very limited amount of time, with the very real risk that the team just wouldn’t be able to find the specific species they were looking for in the massive ocean. Galante spoke with CinemaBlend about the stress of looking for sharks that are nearly impossible to find for a Shark Week special.

Fortunately for Forrest Galante and his team in Alien Sharks: Ghosts of Japan, they did ultimately find an angel shark to spread awareness about their critically endangered status. That’s also not all they discovered, as the team found seventeen unique species as well as witnessed and even assisted with velvet dogfish sharks giving birth. When I spoke with Galante – who joked that he’s now a “shark midwife” after the experience with the velvet dogfish – for Shark Week 2024, I asked him just how much of a needle in a haystack it is to search for one rare shark species. He shared:

Well, do me a favor and don’t tell Discovery this, but it’s a massive needle in a haystack and it’s incredibly stressful, because we set out to find something… that nobody else has succeeded at finding oftentimes for many, many years. So the stress levels are massively high and the pressure to perform is very different from like, ‘Hey, let’s go somewhere with some great white sharks and see if they swim around and get some good video.’ It’s really, really stressful.
