Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 2:00 PM, CST Whale Sharks of Hawai’i, hosted by National Marine Sanctuaries

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are known to be the largest fish in the world with some individuals measuring 20 meters (60 feet) long and weighing around 40 tons. Despite their tremendous size, they are gentle giants, using their nearly 1.5 m-wide (5-foot) mouths to filter plankton out of large volumes of water as they swim.
