A massive 900lbs tiger shark has been killed by fisherman on a tiny boat off the coast of Sydney after a 45-minute struggle.

Captain Paul Barning and the crew of the Dark Horse reeled the big fish on board before taking it to be weighed in at a nearby port.

Shocking images provided to the Daily Mail show one of the fishermen holding onto the shark’s fin as it hangs off the end of the boat.

The creature barely fit onto the deck as it was taken to shore after a 45-minute battle during which the fishermen hauled it on board.

Tiger sharks can grow up to 7.62 metres long and sometimes weigh more than 800kgs.

Game fishers in New South Wales are having one of their best seasons in 30 years, but show off their catches less online due to growing criticism about the sport.

Eight men – aged between 17 and 60 – have been killed by sharks while in the water off the coast of Australia last year.

A recreational fisher in NSW is allowed to have one tiger shark in their daily catch.

Tiger sharks are not yet endangered but the International Union for Conservation of Nature had listed them as ‘near-threatened’.ADVERTISEMENT
