Canada great white shark (1983)

According to the Canadian Shark Research Center, the world’s largest accurately measured great white was 20 feet in length. This was a female caught in 1983 at Canada’s Prince Edward Island. It is caught by the local fisherman David McKendrick. The shark became tangled in McKendrick’s net as he fished off the western side of the island, and died before it was brought to the surface. A large female, estimated to be 19 years old, the shark was a rarity in the northern seas. Yet McKendrick has rarely spoken about the day when he caught the shark in 1983, he wishes it had never happened.
