Replica Great White Shark

Call in and prepare to shudder at the replica of the world-record catch of the great white pointer shark.

Caught by rod and reel by a young local fisherman, this massive shark was a world record catch weighing 1520kg and more than 5m long. It was caught on a 24kg line in April 1990 after a 5 hour 15 minute struggle.

The mature female shark was estimated to be 16 to 18 years old, and was used by researchers to obtain data.
