Sharks caught like this would usually be tagged and released but because this one was already dead the fishermen decided to take it home.
Anyone for shark steaks?
But the fish was so massive they couldn't pull it up on deck so they had to tie it to the side of the boat and tow it back to shore.
Now the lucky fisherman have sold this sharp toothed predator to a fishmongers in Oxford who have said they'll chop it up into 1,000 tasty shark steaks.
It's unusual to catch such big fish in UK waters but it's a long way off the world record. The biggest shark ever caught weighed three times the size of this beast.
