Porbeagle Shark

Porbeagle Shark Lamna nasus

This large shark is usually found in deeper water, where it hunts a variety of smaller fish including mackerel, whiting and herring, as well as octopus, squid and cuttlefish. They are strong swimmers and tagging studies have shown that they can travel huge distances. Image: Clinton Duffy (iNaturalist).
