Sharks in Poland

Sharks are rarely seen in Polish waters as that part of the Baltic Sea is very frigid and not suitable for most members of the shark family. However, some species will occasionally appear, like the porbeagle shark and the small spotted catshark.

List of the Different Types of Sharks in Poland

Species Maximum Size Aggressiveness
Porbeagle Shark 6-12 feet Not aggressive
Small Spotted Catshark 2.5-3 feet Not aggressive
Spiny Dogfish 2.5-3.5 feet Not aggressive (due to their small size)



There are no recorded shark attacks in Polish waters.


Great white sharks do not swim close to Polish waters as they are too cold for the shark to live in.
