The white shark preys upon a variety of fishes and marine mammals. Fish such as salmon, hake, halibut, mackerel and tunas are common prey, as are marine mammals such as harbor porpoises and harbor seals. However whites also eat other sharks, sea turtles and seabirds. They may also feed upon blubber from dead whale carcasses. Examination of the stomach contents of one great white caught off Deer Island, New Brunswick revealed three porpoises within it.

It depends on where in the world the shark is. Most Great White Sharks eat many different types of fish. One of there favorite meals/snacks are seals. This is one of the main reasons people are attacked by great white sharks, because they may have a shadow that resembles a seal to the shark.
