Deep Blue is one of the biggest great white sharks ever caught on film. Jaws Strikes Back, part of the Shark Week 2014 lineup, was filmed in partnership with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Great white sharks aren't the world's biggest sharks, since that title goes to the whale shark, but they are the planet's largest known predatory fish. Over the past two decades, most researchers accepted that the largest great white was a 23-foot individual caught in 1987 off the coast of Maltaby Alfredo Cutajar. More recent studies on information concerning the specimen suggest its length had been exaggerated. Experts mainly agree that 20 feet is the more common maximum size for a great white, with these larger individuals weighing around 4,200 pounds. Females tend to be larger than males, so they can fall into the 20-footer group. The majority of great whites, however, measure between 13 and 16 feet with an average weight of 1,500 to 2,450 pounds.
