Greenland shark is the most toxic shark in the world. Due to its rich ammonia concentration, eating its fresh meat could even lead to death. Only after a long curing process, it becomes safe to eat. We traveled to Bjarnarhöfn, Iceland where one family has been curing Greenland sharks for hundreds of years.

  • for people that do not know the purpose of the high concentration of ammonia in that shark is 1. to survive warm waters as ammonia when used in sealed systems can maintains a cool temperature 2. The Islandic sharks can go to deeper depths by keeping CO2 from boiling in the blood due to high pressures in very low depths 3. Very fast ascend or descending again due to the ammonia and a very slow rate of C02 boiling. 4. Protection from other marine predators simply because ammonia will leak out of the sharks body as no system is one hundred per cent sealed! Ammonia is a deterrent, early deterrent! These sharks do not even get bitten! lol
