100 days in captivity for Great White


The Great White shark at the Monterey Bay Aquarium has now been alive and well in captivity for a record 100 days.

The female shark, which was caught a few months ago and acclimatised in a large pen before being introduced to the aquarium, is the only one in captivity.

The previous record for keeping a Great White shark alive was around 16 days.

The aquarium is closely monitoring the health of the fish and has said that it will release it back into the wild if it shows signs of deteriorating.
