A Great white shark ( Carcharodon carcharias ) was caught off the coast of Mahdia, the capital of Mahdia Governorate in Tunisia. Other sources are reporting that the catch occurred off Salakta beach on 19. October 2013. The specimen measured about 4 metres in length and 1.5 tons in weight. It was sold for 3.500 dinars (over 2.100 US-Dollars). In late 2012, another great white shark was killed by Tunisian fishermen in the waters off Sousse.
