A documentary DVD mentioned that mako sharks swim some 2000km per month in search of prey. This was certainly backed up by Morry the mako who swam some 15,700km in 7 months after being tagged off of Port MacDonnell, South Australia on 5th June 2012. The 2m-long male mako shark swam to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean and back again in those 7 months. He had returned to within 200km of where he was tagged in south-eastern SA by 16th February 2013.
