It depends on the type of shark, the size of the shark, and the amount of chlorine but my guess would be not very long at all.

Also, it is not salt water and I don't think that would bode well for the shark.  ;) ..Unless it is a Bull shark or some other species capable of tolerating fresh water.

I'd say most normal sharks would not survive longer than 12-24 hours.

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Well, how long would you be able to survive if you were ingesting bleach and inhaling bleach fumes?  That's akin to what the shark would experience since its gills would be taking in a dilute bleach solution.

you gotta be kidding me.. ROFL

"Say you're in a [chemical] plant and there's a snake on the floor. What are you going to do? Call a consultant? Get a meeting together to talk about which color is the snake? Employees should do one thing: walk over there and you step on the friggin� snake." - Jean-Pierre Garnier, CEO of Glaxosmithkline, June 2006
