Buying Mako Shark online: Know What to Look for

As with all of our products, the Mako Shark is sourced responsibly.

Considered the best of all sharks to eat, the mako shark’s dense and meaty flesh is exceptionally versatile. Likened to swordfish, the meat is generally a little darker and always moister. Low in fat and having a medium to full flavor, its pinkish-white flesh will lighten during cooking. Mako can be marinated, blackened, grilled, boiled, fried, cubed for use in soups and stews, or chunked for kebabs. Wrapping or covering the meat during cooking keeps the moisture in.

Shark has become a fashionable food in the U.S. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act requires overfished shark stocks to be rebuilt and require healthy shark populations to be maintained. We source Mako Sharks from the United States and Mexico.

Mako Shark is high in protein and low in fat. It is a good source of niacin, vitamins B6 and B12, and phosphorus and a very good source of selenium.

Each Fresh and Frozen (Fin-fish item) comes in standard packs containing 2 pieces of either 6 or 8 ounce portions.

When buying Mako Shark online, make Anderson Seafoods your first and last source.
