Biggest ever Great White Shark caught
Thursday 14 February 2002 - Hundreds of people watched in stunned silence as the biggest great white shark ever caught was offloaded at the Sharks Board offices at Umhlanga, Durban.
SABC radio news reported yesterday that the female was caught a week ago at Richard´s Bay on an experimental drum line (these contraptions have replaced traditional shark nets).
According to the SABC report, the fish, which weighs a massive 1.16 tons (1,160 kg) and is almost five metres long, will be dissected and its jaws put on display at the board´s offices.
