Sharks

Razor-sharp teeth, giant fins and super strength jaws! 

Sharks have lived in our oceans for more than 420 million years! That makes them older than trees!

With over 500 species in our oceans, they're true survivors with a top of the class sense of smell.

SEA LIFE Trust is actively working with the Shark Trust to campaign against unsustainable shark fishing in EU waters. SEA LIFE is also proud to be coordinating the European black tip reef shark breeding programme.

Brrrrrr!! These sharks live in our chilly UK waters! 

These guys go by many nicknames - Bull Huss, Greater Spotted Catshark, and Greater Spotted Dogfish. Some of which you, sadly, may have spotted at fish and chip shops or the fishmonger's slab - despite being a species open to over-fishing.
