Porbeagle Shark
(Lamna nasus)

Acrylic on compressed hardboard. The Porbeagle shark is found in the cold waters of the North Atlantic, and is legally fished off Canada’s east coast, and caught, legally, as an unintended “bycatch” of other fisheries, even though it is endangered. The Porbeagle is not very “shark-like”, being quite rounded in form, and not at all the streamlined, elongated shape of other shark species, its blunt shape and a light patch at the base of the dorsal fin help to identify it.

They are a medium-sized shark and like the vast majority of shark species, they have never been known to attack a human (although Porbeagles do tend to avoid the warmer, shallower water where you are more likely to find people swimming).
