The shark let go when the boy's father jumped into the water to rescue him.

The lifejacket the boy was wearing at the time was sent to CSIRO marine scientists to help determine what type of shark it was.

A statement released by Tasmania Police on behalf of the boy's family on Tuesday said the inspection had concluded the damage was "consistent with a white shark, with total length approximately 3.6-3.7 metres".

"Whilst this has been an extraordinary event, it highlights the importance of wearing a well maintained and correctly fitted lifejacket as that, combined with the bravery of his father, helped save the boy's life," the statement read.

The boy's grandfather David Arnott said at the time the incident was "a shock" to the whole family.

"A shark, unprovoked and undetected, jumped out of the water and grabbed [the boy], pulling him over the side of the boat into the water," he said.

"As you would understand, it was a shock to all those involved, a shock to our family. It's taken a while for us to actually digest what's happened.

"It's been a stressful time for them and we just want to get some peace so that they can recover."

Shark researcher and author Chris Black described the ordeal as a "freak incident", adding the shark was likely "just pursuing its natural function" while patrolling his territory.

"A shark is an opportunistic feeder, so it will investigate odour trails in the water or any silhouettes that it believes may be prey and once that happens, its natural hunting instinct will kick in," he said.

"Sharks do not want to eat people. They do not intentionally eat people. We're not part of their normal diet."
