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."
    Check out the video above to learn why white sharks are so difficult to keep in captivity and how the Monterey Bay Aquarium designed a program that could keep them alive.

    Look, you are dealing with same ilk of people who have dropped elephants from aircraft. Wonder why they died?
    They have ran horses ( and dog teams) until their lungs bursted.
    They have herded cows to brutal slaughterhouse practice, they have enclosed whales and dolphins in tiny pools.
    They perform horrible and shocking " scientific" experiments on animals.
    They have donated money to research, have they?
    The Bible says " even their tender mercies are cruel"

      1. Not all can do that. Not all folks had the money or time to go all the way to sea to see a shark.
      2. Zoos and aquariums, especially recently, are focused on conservation and education. So, they're already helping conservation as well, especially captive breeding programs. Education as in educating the public as well as research purposes.

    it’s disappointing that these marine biologist can’t practice animal welfare and even recognize after the first attempt that it’s morally wrong. they obviously know their ecology and habitats so there’s just no way that it could work

    People should understand that not everything should be put in display.
    May it be educational or worst for entertainment.
    Even human held in captive dies, not physically but mentally so what more in case of animals. Their level of intelligence doesn't match ours, so the stress of new environment affects them big time.
    Just let the nature alone, they can survive without us but we can't.

    Keeping a great white shark captive is against their nature. They just can’t survive in an enclosed space, they just need to keep moving and exemplifying their free will. Otherwise they literally start smashing their heads in the glass.

    Zoos and aquariums are solely responsible for keeping alive MANY seriously endangered species. Zoos and aquariums have done more for animals than literally anything else we’ve done on this planet. We learn how to take care of them and help them reproduce. Most animals live much longer due to the health care and lack of natural predators.
