About this book

Sharks are probably the most misunderstood animals on the planet. We all still have a lot to learn about these fascinating creatures, which are sadly more seriously threatened with extinction and in greater need of conservation and management action than any other major group of vertebrates.

An Illustrated Pocket Guide to the Sharks of the World has been produced not just because we and so many other people love sharks. It is also because their identification, whether of living animals, fishery catches or body parts sold at markets, is an essential tool to support shark conservation, fisheries management and international trade regulation, prevent further depletion of stocks, and enable their recovery.

Colour plates are by Marc Dando from the hugely acclaimed Sharks of the World: A Fully Illustrated Guide.

Please note that this book has been published for the American market by Princeton University Press as A Pocket Guide to Sharks of the World (ISBN: 9780691165998).
