Another juvenile white shark on display at Monterey Bay Aquarium

According to the Monterey Bay Aquarium website, they have a new juvenile white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) on display. The male shark was apparently intentionally caught last month near Malibu, California by commercial fishermen using a purse seine net with the assistance of a spotter plane. The shark, which is the sixth white shark to be put on display at the MBA was put on display in the aquarium’s Open Sea exhibit yesterday.

Unfortunately, the last white shark on display at MBA was released only to end up dying in fisherman’s gill-net in Mexico months after her release.
