Two tagged‐and‐recaptured tiger sharks Galeocerdo cuvier, measuring 172 and 304 cm total length (L T) and at age 0·75 and 3·50 years, exhibited unmatched growth rates of 118·4 and 55·5 cm year−1, respectively. The larger fish was nearly mature, indicating that G. cuvier off Brazil could mature considerably earlier than conspecifics from other regions.
