More info

The shortfin mako shark, (Isurus oxyrinchus), also known as blue pointer, is a large mackerel shark. It is commonly referred to as the mako shark together with the longfin mako shark (Isurus paucus).

The shortfin mako shark is a fairly large species of shark. An average adult specimen measures around 3.2 m (10 ft) in length and weigh from 60–135 kg (132–298 lb). Females are larger than males. The largest shortfin mako shark taken on hook-and-line was 600 kg (1,300 lb), caught off the coast of California on June 3, 2013. Larger specimens are known, with a few large, mature females exceeding a length of 3.8 m (12 ft) and a weight of 570 kg (1,260 lb). The longest verified length for a Shortfin Mako, caught off France in September 1973, was 4.45 m (14.6 ft). It can attain bursts of speed up to 18.8 m/s. A specimen caught off the coast of Italy and examined in an Italian fish market in 1881 was reported to weigh an extraordinary 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) at a length of 4 m (13 ft). Growth rates appear to be somewhat more accelerated in the shortfin mako than they are in other species in the lamnid family.
