Description: This catalogue covers all the described species of living sharks, batoids, and chimaeras found in the North Atlantic, FAO Areas 21 and 27. The catalogue is intended to be a comprehensive review of the shark-like fishes of the North Atlantic in a form accessible to fisheries workers as well as researchers on shark systematics, biodiversity, distribution, and general biology. It also caters to other researchers that need comparative information on sharks, and their relatives, and to people who encounter sharks during the course of work or play in the sea, or in freshwater, and the general public. It includes species of major, moderate, minor, and minimal importance to fisheries as well as those of doubtful or potential use to fisheries. It also covers those species that have a research, recreational, educational, and aesthetic importance, as well as those species that occasionally bite and threaten people in the water and the far more numerous species that are ‘bitten’ and threatened by people through exploitation and habitat modification.
