* The Gen. 1 mako that escaped, killed a normal shark, and then was rounded up again in the opening sequence wasn't just a chance escapee. It was ''scouting the area'' to confirm that the nearby waters were suitable for all three super-makos to inhabit: not too warm or cold, no rival predators to fear, and plenty of prey. It attacked the boat to test its own hunting abilities, verifying that they'd be able to survive on their own once humans weren't supplying them with food anymore. Not much point in staging a jailbreak if you're just going to starve to death once you're free, is there...?

*** The Gen. 1 was the shark that ''ate'' the ThreateningShark.

** So if the protein had to come from sharks, and big ones specifically, why not use whale or basking sharks? They're already enormous, and don't bite bits off people.

* The the entire BatmanGambit of the sharks. Letting them loose wouldn't seem like a big deal to horror audiences on the surface. But any biology expert can tell you that this is a bad idea. Hypothetically, if there were real life Smart-Sharks like the Makos, the first thing they'd do upon escaping would be to mate with the local sharks. Eventually this would result birth to more smart sharks. There were only 3 in the beginning, so multiply that by the natural mating habit and birth rates of the average Mako Shark. To put it lightly, imagine an entire ocean full of sharks that can think and are ten times more aggressive than a rogue [[{{Jaws}} Great White.]]

** They made a big deal out of sharks not dying from cancer. I think they're trying to imply that sharks have scary regenerative abilities. But, as for the FridgeLogic, the crew of this experiment show a surprising amount of GenreSavvy for being a bunch of people that signed on to make super-intelligent sharks in the first place...

*** It was described as a Gen. 1, so yeah, it was genetically enhanced.

** One of the scientists state that they added the lab after the fact. The window was likely not part of the original design.

Added DiffLines:

* They genetically engineer large super-intelligent sharks because the issue they have is cost feasability due to yield of the anti-alzheimers protein from regular Mako sharks; if they can do that then why don't they just isolate the DNA sequence that creates this protein and put that in to a bacterial plasmid? They could then harvest the protein from bacterial cultures with a very low chance of anyone losing their favourite limbs.
