Sharks are terrifyingly fascinating to humans. Probably one of the most misunderstood of predators, sharks are feared by humans as maneaters, yet the reality is that shark attacks are relatively few. But sharks themselves are preyed upon by man, mainly for their fins, which are used to make shark fin soup, a delicacy in many Asian nations, and used for medicinal purposes. Sharks are also objects of prey in sport fishing, mainly in the warm waters of the world's seas. Regardless of the source of your interest in the mesmerizing shark, the pages of this book offer a better understanding of this unique fish and its challenges. Over 400 species of shark belong to one of eight orders, each of which is described through both words and pictures in Sharks.
