How To Put A Great White Shark In Your Trophy Room

As landing a Great White Shark is now illegal the world over, the only way to put Jaws in your trophy room is with a fiberglass replica.

And nobody makes one as good as Joe Pitruzzello of Northeast Taxidermy.

I spoke with Joe about the mount and how it came to be.

Gayne: Tell me about your Great White Shark mount. How big is it?

Joe: This particular Great White is 15 ½’ and originally weighed 3,500 lbs!!!

Gayne: So the mount is based on an actual shark?

Joe: The molds that we use to produce this shark was taken off of the actual fish caught back in the 1970’s when it was legal to catch them. 

Gayne: What type of client generally purchases a Great White Shark taxidermy mount?

Joe: Our largest clients are larger chain restaurants. When installed in a restaurant, they are real eye catchers.  They definitely create the “WOW!” factor when you see them. We also sell to an occasional individual that may have caught one years ago. 

Gayne: So what’s the cost on one of these bad boys?

Joe: Between $14.00 – $17.00 per inch, measuring from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. 

Thanks Joe.
