In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

A World Record: Largest Shark Caught With Rod and Reel

Sad, because you can't really eat the shark, it contains trimethylene oxide, a posion that affects humans the same as being "severely" intoxicated, according to the Phantoms and Monsters blog where you can find more on this story. Though, as the OP says, the toxin can be removed and the shark meat then eaten, which is considered a delicacy in Greenland and Iceland.
