Was about 12miles off jersey shore when we came across this. Getting 2 different answers on what type it is. What do you think?
What kind of shark is this?

15 feet long?
Sounds like a Big shark.

Probably a basking shark at that size. Did it move slowly? Deff not a white can tell by the dorsal.

Sorry guys, def not hammerhead. Saw the head, just couldn't get it in the pic. We did see couple hammers that day also

I second the basking shark suggestion...coloration is not far from a white, but as mentioned above, dorsal fin disqualifies that as a possibility
