Mako Shark (Isurus oxyrinchus) Photographs and Information



The mako shark or mako is sometimes called a blue pointer or mackerel shark .

It is occasionally confused with the more lightly built blue shark (Prionace glauca), but this latter species has much longer pectoral fins, a longer, more rounded nose or snout and very different teeth. Also, the top lobe of the blue shark's tail is noticeably longer than the bottom lobe. There are said to be at least two species of mako sharks in the world's oceans. The most common in Australian waters is the shortfin mako described here.

Dorsal spines (total): 0 - 0; Anal spines: 0. A large, spindle-shaped shark with large black eyes, a sharp snout, and large, narrow, hooked teeth with smooth edges. Caudal fin lunate, lower lobe strongly developed. Dark blue above, white below. Tiny second dorsal and anal fins.

Oceanic, but sometimes found close inshore. Usually in surface waters, down to about 150 m. Coastal, epipelagic at 1->500 m. Feeds on bony fishes, other sharks, cephalopods; larger individuals may feed on larger prey such as billfish and small cetaceans. Ovoviviparous, embryos feeding on yolk sac and other ova produced by the mother. With up to 18 young in a litter. Tagging in New Zealand indicates seasonal migrations. Probably the fastest of all sharks and can leap out of the water when hooked. Potentially dangerous and responsible for unprovoked attacks on swimmers and boats. Utilized fresh, dried or salted, smoked and frozen; eaten broiled and baked. Valued for its fine quality meat as well as its fins and skin. Oil is extracted for vitamins and fins for shark-fin soup. Jaws and teeth are also sold as ornaments and trophies. Give birth to 4-16 young, 60-70 cm long.

Angling for Shark | Shark Fishing:

Angling for Mako Shark:
Mako sharks are eagerly sought by game and sport fishers who mostly target them with live and dead fish baits presented on wire leaders in a berley (chum) trail. However, they have also been known to strike lures and flies, and are very fond of fresh or live squid. When hooked, the mako is a strong, spirited fighter sometimes capable of spectacular aerial displays. It can be an especially dangerous adversary when gaffed or tail roped, and there are countless stories of violent mako encounters at boat-side !

Cooking Shark:

Colour of Raw Fillet:

Pink

Texture/firmness:

medium/firm, flaky.

Fat Content:

Low

Flavour: Medium, sweet. Mild to moderate fishy flavour

The mako is regarded as one of the finest eating sharks of all, with dense, pinkish meat that is very similar to that of the broadbill swordfish. It should be thoroughly bled after capture. The flesh of very large makos can be a little coarse at times and may contain high levels of heavy metals and other accumulated contaminants.

Smaller sharks have sweet and delicious flesh, and are popular for their boneless and thick flakes. They have been commonly used for the traditional fish and chips but should not be overlooked for barbecuing, poaching, braising and baking. Marinate first in oil and lemon to tenderise the flesh.

Remove the skin before cooking, particularly when barbecuing, to prevent it shrinking and tearing the flesh.

Excellent for soups, shark is most popularly used in Asian-style shark fin soup and can also be successfully combined with crab meat. The texture of shark also makes it a great ingredient for fish cakes or kebabs.

Make good use of the firm flesh and enhance the flavour by cooking slowly with strong tomato and herb sauce.

Ammonia odour in shark flesh can be reduced by soaking it in milk, vinegar and water or lemon juice. However, if ammonia odours are detected, it is advisable to reject the product.
