Good catch.

I still wonder how they got close to the shark, to measure it. :laugh:


You never watched that TV show ?

They get the shark with a bait and a big ****ing line and then wait for him/her to be exhausted using air containers on the line (exactly like in Jaws actually) to keep the shark afloat. I think it takes many hours lol then they get the shark on a lift and sedate him/her.

I would not like to be the guy removing the bait from the shark mouth even if he/she is sedated though lol

You can fairly accurately estimate a shark's total length by observing the distance between their dorsal fin and their tail fin, if I'm not mistaken. There is a ratio that is used, but I think it varies by species.

They might have used something like this as well: http://www.treehugge...ming-lunch.html
