2000-Pound Shark Caught Off Mexico Coast Could Be Longest Great White Spotted

A great white shark nearly 20 feet long and weighing 2,000 pounds was caught by commercial fisherman in northwestern Mexico this week.

The shark was dead by the time fishermen brought it to the surface, but they were still shocked by their discovery.

“We were amazed and immediately realized that we had a huge, dead, great white shark,” Guadalupe, one of the men who caught the ferocious fish, told reporters. “And then we thought ‘what are we going to do?'”

They dragged the floating shark two miles to shore.

If the shark is truly around 19.8 feet long, it would be one of the longest great whites ever recorded.
