THE MAKO SHARK

The Shortfin Mako Shark (Isurus oxyrinchus), commonly called Mako Shark, is a large shark of the Lamnidae family with a full-grown size of 2.75 to 3.75m (9-12 feet). It usually weighs around 250 to 700kg (575 to 1600 pounds) and has a bluish top and a white underside. Although the sexes grow at about the same rate, females are thought to have a longer life span. Females grow larger and weigh more than the males. Makos are renowned for their speed and their ability to leap out of the water. The sharks have an average speed of 22 miles per hour, with a burst speed of up to 60 miles per hour. While the name 'Mako' comes from the Maori, this high leaping, boat attacking fish is sought as game worldwide. Some of the largest Makos in the world can be found in New England waters. There are two species of Mako. The other Mako species, the longfin, Isurus paucus, is found farther offshore in the Gulf Stream. Makos were popularized in the movie Deep Blue Sea. Makos own the ocean~ The shortfin Mako dominates the ocean. Some fish experts believe the short fin Mako, Isurus oxyrinchus, is one of the fastest fish in the ocean. A Mako will out jump any marlin by a considerable margin. The shortfin Mako, is the highest leaping and most dangerous gamefish in the world. No wimpy, belly to the water marlin type jumps for a Mako. Some of the Mako's somersaulting violent reckless jumps have caused anglers to pass the rod off to another fisherman. There are plenty of Mako disaster stories from around the world; including wrecked cockpits and fatalities, and a lot of injuries in between. Some Mako fiasco stories will never be told, because of the embarrassed anglers. Not all Makos are jumpers or that troublesome, but the potential is always there. For that reason alone, shark identification is important, especially when you have a chance of encountering a Mako. The Mako has an attitude. It owns the ocean, and you are trespassing in its territory. Chopping tails off other sharks, swordfish , tuna, marlin,-and attacking boats when hooked- gets the message across. According to the IGFA, the short fin Mako is the undisputed leader in attacks on boats. A Mako is primarily a fish eater. However a Mako will occasionally attack and kill an air breathing dolphin, or a seal. Makos usually stay in water offshore, so encounters with swimmers in shallow water are rare for the Mako. Occasionally a Mako will be caught from shore. As you can see below the Mako is a worldwide fish.
