  1. soupfin shark

    A soupfin shark is a species of ground shark (Galeorhinus galeus), also known as the school shark or tope shark. It is found in temperate waters worldwide, and is valued for its meat and fins. These species are mid-sized sharks, gray or brown in color, with torpedo-shaped bodies that typically grow to around 5 feet in length. They are known for their migratory behavior and are considered as a commercially important species. However, due to overfishing, the population of soupfin sharks has significantly declined, making them a near threatened species.
