Carcharhinus melanopterus (Quoy, Gaimard, 1824)
Geographic origin : Indo Pacific area, from the Red Sea to east coast of Africa ( Reunion), Hawaii islands and archipelago of Tuamato.
Good to know : it’s a deep-sea shark which implies that it hunts its prey in open water. It can be recognized thanks the extremity of its black fin and its pointed snout. It’s forced to swim all the time to provide enough oxygen to its gills.
