Great White

The Natal Sharks Board (NSB) is a service organisation that protects beach users in KwaZulu-Natal against shark attacks. It has over thirty years of experience in prevention of shark attacks and research on sharks. Its staff act as consultants throughout the world.The NSB supports and promotes the conservation of sharks. The Great White Shark, also known as White Pointer, White Shark or Amaletz, is an exceptionally large lamniform shark found in coastal surface waters in all major oceans. Reaching lengths of about 4 meters and a weight near 1.800 kilograms, the Great White is the world’s largest predatory fish. Great Whites have a sixth sense given by the ampullae de lorenzini, which permits them to detect the electromagnetic field emitted by the movement of living animals. Their reputation as ferocious predators is well-earned, yet they are not (as once was believed) indiscriminate ‘eating machines’. Great White sharks primarily eat fish and pinnipeds such as seals and sea lions. They are apex predators; the only animals known to attack them are other Great Whites, sperm whales, orcas, and humans.
