I saw this today on Newsweek – Incredible Video of Scar-covered Great White Shark Goes Viral: https://www.newsweek.com/scar-covered-great-white-shark-video-1646244. Longer article. Includes video of the shark.

Footage has surfaced of a great white covered in scars, showing the 9.8-foot fish with dozens of huge gashes across its body.
The video was taken by Dean Spraakman of Sea Dragon Films, who was diving off the Neptune Islands, Australia. The film was originally uploaded in January, but recently went viral on several subreddits.
What caused the injuries to the male shark is unknown. However, as they mostly appear to be concentrated on one side of the shark’s body, Spraakman suggests it may have been hit by a boat.
