Great Hammerhead (Sphyrna mokarran)

Series of elevation illustrations of the Great Hammerhead

The ideal areas to catch the Great Hammerhead (Sphyrna mokarran) are tropical and warm temperate waters. It is the largest among all hammerhead sharks and distinguished by the shape and size of its tail, first dorsal fin (sickle-shaped), and hammer, which is wide with a straight front margin. This apex predator is strong, solitary, viviparous, feeding on rays, other sharks, and bony fish. The stout, shark-shaped body is light gray on the surface but cream-colored on the underside. It is also called squat-headed hammerhead, highly valued in commercial and recreational fishing. In commercial fishing, its large fins are a delicacy in the Asian fin trade.

Great Hammerheads have a total length between 12’-20’ (3.66-6.1 m) and body width of 21”-34.6” (53-88 cm). The typical weight of the Great Hammerhead is in the range of 510-1,000 lb (231-454 kg). Great Hammerheads have lifespans between 20-30 years.
