Fact Sheet- Mako Shark

Description: 

The Shortfin Mako Shark (Isurus oxyrinchus) and the Longfin Mako Shark (Isurus paucus) occupy epipelagic habitats in tropical and warm-temperate seas.  As a long-lived species (at least 30 years) with low fecundity (11 young every 3 years) and late age at maturity, population recovery times for Shortfin Mako are slow.
