The Greenland Shark is a rare shark found only in Endless Ocean: Blue World.
"This large shark inhabits the depths of the Arctic Ocean. As it can live deeper than 1000m, so said sightings are rare.
It has a poison in its flesh that causes a condition similar to intoxication when eaten, even making it impossible to stand."
The Greenland Shark can be found in the North Coast of Canada area, at coordinates A1, C1 and D3.
Three or four solitary individuals swim around several of the ice holes. They are aggressive and will attempt to attack the player when the player comes within range. The player is able to use the Pulsar on them to calm them down for a bit, but they shake of the effects of the Pulsar quickly.
The Greenland Shark is thought to be the most aggressive creature in the game by some players (aside from the notorious Okeanos's Guardian and Thanatos), but this has not been proven, either by trial or by examining game coding.
- These are dangerous in-game, and Jean-Eric has said they have been known to swallow a seal or a reindeer without antlers whole. In real life, this shark is not considered dangerous to humans, though Inuit legends report these sharks attacking kayaks.
- When you ride on the Ancient Mother, she'll swim through areas that are patrolled by these sharks. If you encounter one, the danger alarm will go off, but neither you nor the whale will take damage.
- This shark, in real life, is actually one of the largest, able to compete in dimensions with the likes of the Great White Shark.
- Beaks discovered in the stomachs of dead individuals from the family that the Greenland shark is in suggest to scientists that these sharks (and their relatives) may feed on Giant Squid, or even the rumored Colossal Squid, which does not make an appearance (but something inspired by its appearance is mentioned in the game, at least).
- This shark has one of the lowest recorded swimming speeds, with a top speed only about half the maximum swimming speed of the typical seal.
- Measurements taken by scientists suggest that the longest-lived individuals of this species may live past 200 years, making them one of the longest-lived vertebrates on earth.
