About this book

Language: French

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.

Requins du Monde 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.

Summary in French:
Ce guide d'identification a pour but de mieux faire connaître les requins afin d'encourager leur préservation et le respect de la réglementation internationale sur leur commerce. Il présente 501 espèces décrites et illustrées, ainsi qu'une clé d'identification très précise des grandes familles de requins. Cette dernière est complétée par une clé sur les dents, et une autre sur les nageoires les plus souvent rencontrées dans le commerce.
