Great White Sharks (Carcharodon carcharias), also known as the “White Shark” or “White Pointer”, is one of the largest shark species and is found in continental shelf waters of all major oceans. They can reach roughly 6 m in length and live for over 30 years, however our understanding of is limited and more research into the population size, distribution and life history of this species is required. Unfortunately, Great White sharks are categorised as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, with global populations decreasing as a result of human activity.
