Great white sharks hold a special place at the top of the apex predator list. They also have quite a few other traits that protect them from captivity.
Yes, if you haven’t noticed, you wont find a great white shark in any aquariums. Nature has really outfitted the great white with a number of traits that make it just impractical to capture and transport.

When placed in captivity they become depressed. When they are depressed they become agitated and end up injuring themselves.
The following YouTube video clip, “Why NO Aquarium In The WORLD Has A Great White Shark!”, highlights 10 not so obvious reasons that you will not see a great white shark in any of the world’s aquariums.The video is both informative and entertaining.
