South Africa: Great white shark population smaller than estimated?

According to a study conducted by the Dyer Island Conservation Trust using dorsal fin identification and automated software, the great white shark population in Gansbaai in South Africa is way smaller than previously thought. The number of great white sharks in the area was estimated at 2,000 animals, but the findings of the research indicate that the real population could be at 50% lower.
