The Different Types of Mako Shark

When most people refer to "mako sharks", they are collectively referring to shortfin and longfin mako sharks. These are the only two types of mako sharks currently inhabiting the earth's oceans today. While they both look quite similar in appearance, there are some distinguishable differences between the two.

One of the most notable features of mako shark is their incredible speed at which they can soar through the ocean. When they are in pursuit of aquatic prey, a healthy shortfin mako shark can reach speeds of 46mph (longfin makos are slightly slower), which makes them the fastest species of shark in the world.

Shortfin Mako Shark

The shortfin mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus) is one of the most widespread species of sharks, inhabiting a wide range of aquatic environments throughout the world. In addition to living in both warm and cold waters, Mako sharks can be found feeding as high as the surface of the water or as low as 500 feet below.

Because of widespread overfishing, the population of shortfin mako sharks have dropped significantly in the past decade. In 2010, Greenpeace International added this species to their "red dot list" which is a collection of fish sold throughout the world, and harvested from unsustainable fishing practices.

Female shortfin sharks reproduce about once every three years on average. They bear their pups in a small yolk-sac for about 16-18 months before giving birth to anywhere between 4 and 20 pups.

Shortfin mako sharks are extremely fast and agile, reaching speeds up to 46mph on record. However, some scientists believe swim as fast as 60mph or faster. In addition, they can jump as high as 30 feet out of the water.

Unlike the longfin, there are some reported cases of attacks by the shortfin mako on humans. Since 1980, there have been  around 40 reported attacks by the shortfin. Although, most of these attacks are directly related to the shortfin being caught in fishing nets or brought on fishing boats.

Longfin Mako Shark

The other species of mako shark, the longfin (Isurus paucus) inhabits many of the same waters as their sister species the shortfin. Compared to the shortfin, longfin mako sharks slightly longer, growing to lengths of 14 feet (largest caught on record). Another noticeable difference between the two species are the prominant pectoral fins in longfin makos. Because of these pectoral fins, the longfin isn't considered as fast or agile as the shortfin.

When you're swimming in the ocean, you shouldn't have to worry about being attacked by a longfin shark. Since their discovery, there has never been any documented attacks by the longfin mako shark.

Much like the shortfin, the population of longfin mako sharks has significantly been reduced in recent years. In fact, some scientists believe their numbers have dropped as much as 30-40% since the 1980's. Because of this, it's recommended that you release longfin sharks if they are caught on your fishing line.

Differences Between Longfin and Shortfin Mako Shark

  • Longfins are typically longer than their counterpart the shortfin.
  • Shortfins are significantly faster than longfins (check the video below).
  • Longfins have broad pectoral fins which limit their speed and agility in the water.
  • Longfins are significantly more rare to see than shortfins.
