The Mako shark is one of the most sought after species of shark. The quality and taste of its meat is equivalent to the swordfish, and its impressive speed and ability to rocket from the ocean's surface like a missile is an angler's dream.

The Mako has a dark grey upper body fading from blue into pale white below. The front teeth are long, narrow and curved, with no projecting points (cusps).

They can grow as large as 12 feet, to over 1200 lbs.
