Why no aquarium has a great white shark

Many have tried to keep a white shark in captivity. Here's why that's so difficult. There are several aquariums around the world, including one in Georgia, that house whale sharks, the biggest fish in the sea. But not one has a great white shark on display. Aquariums have made dozens of attempts since the 1970s to display a captive great white shark. Most of those attempts ended with dead sharks. By the 2000s, the only group still trying was the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which spent a decade planning its white shark program. In 2004, it acquired a shark that became the first great white to survive in captivity for more than 16 days. In fact, it was on display for more than six months before it was released back into the ocean. In the following years, the Monterey Bay Aquarium hosted five more juvenile white sharks for temporary stays before ending the program in 2011. It was an expensive effort and had come under criticism due to injuries that some of the sharks developed in the tank. Responding to those critics, Jon Hoech, the aquarium's director of husbandry operations, said: "We believe strongly that putting people face to face with live animals like this is very significant in inspiring ocean conservation and connecting people to the ocean environment. We feel like white sharks face a significant threats out in the wild and our ability to bring awareness to that is significant in terms of encouraging people to become ocean stewards."

I think the problem is in those walls. As in, that people try to put those animals inside of them, out of their own home and habitat, for their own amusement.
If your argument is - it's done for research. Well, technologies are developed enough for that being redundant and anthropologists don't take people out of their environments and don't put them in labs ec. to research and get the knowledge of them/their tribes, but look from a far and that's how they see the best what that creature is up to and why, human, fish or the great white shark.

Stop bringing them into your little containment! "They kept dying shortly after being put in that aquarium. HmMmM I wOnDer wHy??!!?? Better be successful next time around!" No, just no! Stop being such a greedy and egotistical human. They don't belong there. There are tons and tons of water and space where they live, hell, they probably roam around the earth without any obstacle at all. Humans just had to be greedy bastards and caught those beautiful ancient creatures just for what, entertainment, money, and fame? If it's for knowledge or studies, you can do it from their habitat. Geez, no need to killing it.

You didn't actually say why.

The answer is, sharks use echolocation. In an aquarium setting, where people are often bumping into or tapping the glass, is disrupts the sharks ability to use echolocation and they run into the glass or get confused. Basically they starve or just injure themselves and die.

Maybe if they gave it some sort of equivalent of a hamster wheel, like a chamber with a weird current that would make the shark feel like it was roaming vast distances. Seems like they're really expensive to maintain, whether or not they figure out a good method of keeping them alive for more than few days in captivity.

Imagine some other lifeform accidently catching us in their "fishnet" and then be like; hey, since you're allready in a net, why not put you in a glass box for all the others to look at. And if you die after some days its okey, cause there are plenty of more humans to collect and to be put inside this great box.
I dont get why its different just because its a shark. Poor creatures, they need to be free not put on display for us humans.

they may try instead of walls, maybe gradual shallow water. deep in the middle and more shallow at its boundaries meeting the edge of the enclosure instead of high walls. a shark is used to varying depths of the ocean. perhaps this would help it get used to its smaller home.

It is believed by marine biologists that sharks don't sleep and they believe that they swim their whole life just to breathe. I believe they have an ability to find ocean currents that they can have run through their gills while their bodies movement is drastically reduced.During this time they sleep. All animals sleep. Maybe not like mammals but certainly on some level. They need to build a tank that mimics natural swift running ocean currents. Maybe with special contours on the floor so the animal can rest.

There's animals who can be kept in captivity, but there are also animals who can't be contained. Even in the best conditions, they need the freedom of wide, open areas that being in captivity just can't provide for them. An aquarium just isn't a place for a great white shark.

It would be cool to see one, but it breaks my heart to find out that they suffer from being kept in a tank.

They're just not meant for being in captivity. I understand the curiosity and awe of wanting to see them, be near them, experience a live great white up close: They're seriously awe-inspiring animals, modern day prehistoric giant predators that live right out in the silent, deep, wide open ocean... It's fascinating. But human fascination isn't a good reason to keep capturing and killing animals. That's like a little kid who hurts the pet cat because it's curious about cats. I know that more sharks are killed by fishing trawlers, for food, or in shark culls than in any of these aquariums, but it's still unnecessary (and so are those other things). Scientific curiosity and research is one thing, and I'm glad that these attempts at least lead to more knowledge and understanding about these sharks, but they just don't belong up here, on land, in a tank inside a building, bumping into walls getting distressed while people gawk. I'm glad they stopped the program. Leave the sharks in the ocean, we share a planet but have completely different worlds. They don't belong in ours.

Stop putting sharks in tanks people! Do you know how helpful sharks are to the world? Well sharks diets are good so if there are too many fish sharks will eat them and make sure the ocen is good without them we could have a hard time in waters so stop putting sharks in tanks! If its gonna die then ok thats it dont do it

So they could keep one in captivity temporarily, the same way they tested it out, a large fenced in area and use the natural sea water. Sounds extremely expensive, and having an observation area would likely mean having a tunnel underneath the water...

People who still think sharks are dangerous, listen, if ur gonna be scared of sharks, run away right now to an island where nobody lives cause there‘s an even more danger thing right next to. People. Less than 10 people are killed by sharks every year. But how many sharks do people kill? Probably millions. Then which one should we be more scared of? Isn't it obvious?

I was there at the MBA as a student guide during 2004 when they were displaying the White. Vox is missing a key component of why Great Whites in particular are so damn hard to keep alive in captivity, as opposed to say, hammerheads, another deep sea shark that while difficult, is kept alive quite frequently. Great Whites hunt with a finely tuned system that sends out some sort of pulse into the environment. Great whites kept detecting the generator that was being used in exhibits such as the Outer Bay, (where they kept the one they finally got to work), and it was literally sending the sharks into seizures. It's why the MBA gave up on keeping whites, it was simply too hard to adjust everything in the environment for them. Plus, ofc, the one they had in 2004 tore into a tuna also in the exhibit right in front of a guide explaining how these creatures are so misunderstood, lol.

Okay, i scroll down and see this. First: Sade Life1015, considering how many they tried (and failed) to bring into captivity, I'd say they did a pretty good job tryna take care of it. The sharks are endangered, the ecological system already went a few rungs down, and a buncha guys taking in one for entertainment is.... wrong. But not all zoos do that, and some may be even tryna save a few sharks, except.. they're not succeeding. Also, how would we know what we know about the sharks if there was no zoo? Sure, wildlife studies can be conducted, but they can often be a little misleading in regards to the situations. Also, we don't know what the shark was thinking (and we never will), and we don't know if the shark wanted it or not. And if the sharks die... then they die. It's what will happen with us anyway.

Theres so many factors involved, pressure and what not(maybe). Not to mention, stress. If they really want to have a great white shark, just place them in a very large enclosure outside. And a deep one too. by deep I mean underground. If they already tried those then idk, maybe stop? Do atleast 2 more decades of research and comparison before placing them in aquariums

for me i think GW sharks are not too comfortable in leaving in such a not so wide space aquarium and they tend to quit they life like self suicide like Tarsier here in the Philippines when they'd startle they tend to suicide but for the sharks i think as a theory of myself and as i've observe GW sharks do like moving water for example the big wide ocean and its saltiness ya na wa i mean? coz way back then okay-okay when i was a little kid i use to catch fish in the sea (Alive) and make it as a pet by putting it in a common aquarium and put water on it put the fishes i;ve caught there and bwuala but as the days goes by they all die... All my poit here is GREAT WHITE SHARKS Cant easily ADAPT in such Choking EVIRONMENT such an AQUARIUM and quitting life like those Everyone else who dont fell like living in this what they called PRISON/HELLl like world...

Great white sharks have senses and abilities that humans and a lot of sharks don't have. These abilties help the shark hunt and well... Navigate the ocean because that's what great whites do. They travel. They travel for miles upon miles. They go to mating areas and hunting areas generally staying near the coast but not in a shallow reef area altho they can travel as shallow as they are tall from stomach to back. The reason they don't generaly hang in these shallow areas is because there hunting tactics is to attack something from above from a great length below using the vertical distance to gain speed. So there hunting abilities really on a large area of vertical room. Us humans have are basic 5 senses that everybody talks about. Sight, touch, hearing, taste, and smell. But imagine if we spent all our life in a world completely differant. Where our form of seeing was murky and to eat we had to find our food in a one colored sea with a lot of that food being colored like the ocean or rocks. Well the sight thing won't get you too far. So ovecorce we would need to fall back on those other senses. While sharks do have sight they have a multitude of other abilitys that are very useful. Have you ever heard the saying "a shark can smell a drop of blood from a mile away"? Well that may be an exaduration to some extent but it is true that sharks are very good at finding blood and injured fish that are easy pray. Great white sharks also have the ability to sence magnetic fields. Thats why magnetic shark repelants works. They can feel very very slight activities in the water that can tell them where activity is. And these are only the surface of all shark abilities. But when you put all this together you have a shark that has a map of the ocean and what is happening around the ocean in the white sharks head. This is how they are able to travel all over and still find breeding and feeding areas. That's what makes this shark so amazing. Some sharks hang out in the reafs. Some sharks near shores feeding on fish and birds that fly near the water. Some behemoth sharks swim in the depths of the ocean feeding on large amounts of plankton and other small sea life. Some even live in the deepest places amagionable under great amounts of pressure and heat. Some live on the bottom of the sea, on top of rocks, blending in with sea bed until a fish swims over it. Some, like the great white, travel long distances as do some forms of the hammerhead but they travel in schools that are formed a lot like the geese we see on land. But the great white has no bounderies or limits the thing about the great white. Its a lone adventurer that goes anywhere it wants when it wants to. One shark could travel all over the world by themselves. That's why they have all these abilities because that's just how they work and live. So when you take one and put it in a tank its like doing the following to a human. Imagine if you were just walking down the street and all of a sudden your blind, deaf, and have almost no senses at all the ones you do still have tell you you've been put in a completely new environment. Even the air your breathing has been changed and feels differant. So you try to move. Nomater what way you go you always bump into a wall within a few feet. You don't know how to eat anymore. And Ofcorce there's no one there to teach you! There's food present but you can't eat it because the old way you ate food doesn't work anymore. You had no warning you just were there. Had all your world suddenly disappear. How long do you think you would survive?

We STUPID humans. We take more than we need, we choose quantity over quality. We’re the only known animal to take milk from another living creature. WE ARE MONSTERS. We take a shark from its home, thinking that it’s just a shark, it’s a predator, it cannot feel pain. By doing this, we have only 6 months of cheap entertainment, then we leave a living creature to suffer the outside world with bruises and disoriented minds. We think that small containers will be enough for the magnificent beasts of the earth? We know we are wrong, we know that these creatures should be respected from afar, not cooped up in zoos and aquariums. Answer me this, can we not help them breed in sanctuaries? Can we not leave them be and create fake skin cloaks and accessories? Apparently, we think we are better than the creatures that do not have our brains. We think that they are just items to look at and move on to the next one.

The Outer Bay exhibit, which is where the great white was kept in the Monterey Bay Aquarium, had its glass created by a Japanese company that was so secretive on how they did it, that they shut down the entire area while they installed the glass. Even MBA employees were kept out. Nothing short of a wrecking ball could have taken that glass out- plus there were 11 layers to it, a crack in one layer would do absolutely nothing to the other 10.

Source- Me, I was there in 2004 when they had this white on display as a student guide, they told us a lot of this because guests would ask us these questions. And "Can she break the glass?" was definitely one of my top-three questions I had about her while working there.

All these people complaining about taking sharks out of their natural habitats.
If you have a pet, or an animal in your home, then you're no better than these people.
Also, if you've ever went to a zoo or an aquarium, then you're just supporting this kind of crap. Get your heads out of your asses.
Yes, I absolutely hate that such a majestic creature has been bothered and attacked for this mess, but I'm also not going to sit around and act like I'm perfect when I have pets in my home and I've went to zoo's, aquariums, etc.. knowing damn good and well that all of the animals, including mine have been taken from their natural habitats for human pleasure.
and yes, humans have done great things like bringing animals back from endangerment and whatnot, but 9 times out of 10, we caused it.
We're not perfect, nor innocent, people. We've caused more damage to this world and everything on it than anything else ever has.

"POP" !!! Now that my head's outta my ass; have you heard about wild vs. domesticated animals? When we bring, (hopefully!!!) a pet from a shelter, they blossom & grow, it's a partnership that works out beautifully. When you take a wild animal, stuff it in a tiny enclosure, & watch it slowly rot away, for profit, well now, that's not the same thing. Let's show animals compassion.

I hope aquariums stop trying if it causes so much stress to the sharks they try to contain. I realise they would be a great drawcard but it's not worth an animal suffering and dying just so crowds can be entertained.
I'll add here that I'm not a "humans deserve to die because they cause animals pain" person, I just think that this is causing unnecessary suffering and further loss of individuals to a species that has suffered a big loss in its population over the years.

Its saddening to think that there may never be a possible way to contain such an amazing creature for the purpose of teaching the public about them. People tend to fear what they don't understand and only hear horror stories about, so zoo and aquarium animals help us to put aside our fears and have appreciation for such creatures. It's definitely better that sharks remain in the wild, but its such a shame lots of people only see them as terrifying aquatic monsters...

Why cant they use like a 1 way glass.....so that the sharks can see the walls and the humans can see the sharks
Alexander Marsh
Alexander Marsh - 3 years ago
over 90% of aquatic animals have the equivalent of a polarizing lens on their eyes. This is what gives them the clarity they need to see through murky water and even correct lightshafts coming in from the surface. While it helps them with hunting it also would negate the 1 way glass that your talking about as they would be able to see right through it. You can try this yourself. grab some polarized glasses put them on and stick your head in a glass filled with water and look at a 1 way mirror, you will be able to see right through it.

they die bc they lived their whole life in the ocean and its their home, they have certain temps and the water, they are not used to the fresh new water they are put in, which makes it harder for them to adapt.and then whe they are trying to adspt u put them back?! thats not right of course they are going to die, they are confused, they dont knkw if they are going to smash into a tank or wat the hell their doing..shame on every1 in this situation leave them alone!

Not at all. They died because of what Vox said in the video, the temp had nothing to do with it, MBA was very careful to make the temp the same as they were used to. everything is highly regulated. They also died because they would sense the generator behind the exhibit and go into seizures because its electrical systems interfered with the white's method of hunting. People calling shame on the MBA is hilarious, the MBA has done more for environmentalism than everyone in these comments combined.

'Eggs shaped tank' i think cylinder is the word you're looking for.
Alexander Marsh
Alexander Marsh - 3 years ago
no cause a cylinder has a straight top and bottom. The take is literally shaped like an egg so if the shark was to hit the bottom he would slide down instead of hitting a flat surface head on.

Ephemeral Memory

Hmm..I wonder how well sharks can see and whether they are sensitive to non-visible (for humans) wavelengths of light. Just like how there are stickers designed for windows to allow birds to view the obstruction, maybe something for sharks could be made. Or use other senses that a shark would have to warn it away from the barrier.

As for diet, I'm not sure. Drop a seal in. x_x (Actually, figure out what exactly they need as an adult shark. What do the larger prey have that smaller ones don't besides mass? Specific vitamins?)

Before anyone wonders, no, I do not want to see any animal in captivity if it is, indeed, only dying (unnaturally). Just wondering about possible solutions.

As an aside, I loved visiting the Okinawa aquarium. The whale sharks and manta rays absolutely fascinated me and really strengthened my passion to learn more about animals in general.

They just simply don't survive in captivity and why should they! Leave them alone. Robots are talking about putting all humans in a zoo.
This is cruel to this magnificent creatures! So little is known about them. Too little to keep them just for entertainment. I hate going to the zoo especially sea world in Queensland. They have a bigger room full of info about penguins and the penguins themselves have such a small room. More room dedicated to informing humans than making the penguins at least comfortable!
