If you think you have caught big fish while ice fishing, you need to go ice fishing for sharks in Greenland.

Greenland sharks are the only native species of shark in the Arctic. The sharks in Greenland live in very deep waters but can be found closer to the surface during the winter when they seek slightly warmer waters.

Greenland sharks can grow to weigh as much as 2,000 pounds. The Greenland shark that the fishermen in this video caught weighed in at about half that.
