How Often do Sharks Eat?

September 22, 2019


My name is Alyssa Daily and I’m an Animal
Care Specialist here at OdySea Aquarium. Here at OdySea our smaller sharks eat
two to three times a day, while some of our larger sharks only eat three times a
week! Most sharks in the wild can go weeks to months without eating. There are
over 500 different species of sharks and all sharks see different things so some
of the smaller species eat krill, small fish, and small crustaceans, but some of
the larger sharks like great whites can even eat some marine mammals like sea
lions and seals.
