Alaska Shark Mystery 2009

Jim Reynolds sent us the following image this morning (thanks Jim). Shot in Alaska this fuzzy picture is a 15 foot shark.

The question is: what species of shark is this?

The original site this images came from is Alaska Outdoors Forum and "Big Jake". You have to be a member to post and read the ongoing threads here:

This shark was caught by a seiner near Ketchikan. Reported to be almost 15 ft. long. seems too long for a salmon shark. Any able to tell from this poor photo?

We'll go out on a limb, because the tail of this critter would tell the tale, and as you can see this shot has no tail. This is a Great White shark.
