The Megamouth Shark

Megachasma pelagios

The Megamouth Shark

Date: 15th November 1976
Location: Approx. 25 miles off the coast Oahu, Hawaii
Mission: A U.S. Navy Ship has orders to search and recover lost "Dummy" Torpedoes.
Result: The most exciting Shark discovery

As the Chute like drift anchor was being towed, suddenly something huge caused it to drag down. On reeling it up back to the ship, the crew are amazed to find a huge fish, entangled in a deep-water net. 

With a mouth measuring 1 metre wide at the tip of a 4.5 metres long brownish coloured flabby body, it was soon realized that nobody had ever seen this species before!!

It took about 7 years before this species was identified and named as Megachasma pelagios, or as it is better known, The Megamouth Shark.

The First Megamouth Shark discovered
in Hawaii on Nov.15th. 1976

Eight years after the original discovery, a second Male specimen was brought up dead, in a fishing net off the coast of California.

Please note that as much as I try to keep this list up to date, I cannot guarantee that it is exact. Many catches are not being reported or data not being shared.

286  Megamouth sharks are being listed here.
