Abstract

 

This study reports the first record of a white shark Carcharodon carcharias off the tropical coast of Nayarit and the southernmost record in the Mexican Pacific. The specimen was a juvenile female accidentally caught by artisanal fisheries in the locality of Playa Novillero, Nayarit. Oceanographic conditions at the time of capture were also recorded, with the aim of improving the knowledge on the ecology of this vulnerable and protected species.
