Through June to October the South West of Cornwall is hugely attractive to blue sharks. They come here to feed on the nutrient rich waters that are unique to the area.
The blue sharks that we see in Cornwall range from 4-9ft in length, although they can grow as large as 12ft.
We see both male and female blue sharks on the south coast of Cornwall, although the majority are females and juveniles, with the females being the larger of the two sexes.
Male blue sharks tend to travel south towards tropical climates and the females and juveniles travel east to more temperate climates, seasonally moving between breeding areas in the north west Atlantic and pupping areas in the north east and north Atlantic.
