Set between crushingly powerful jaws are rows of triangular teeth around 3 inches long which are serrated along either side. This adaptation prevents most sharks from surviving in freshwater, and they are therefore confined to marine environments. Site protection is necessary in some areas where high densities of Whale Sharks are present, as anthropogenic pressures on these sites could have disproportionate impact on subpopulation declines.

They are one of the largest fish found in the reef and can be identified by not only the forehead lump but also their thick “lips”. Schmidt et al. (2009) estimated genetic effective population size to be 103,572, with a standard error of 27,401–179,794, based on microsatellite analysis. Unfortunately, they have not been granted full international protection yet, which allows a sizable black market network to perpetuate the sale of white shark jaws and teeth.

Sharks live all over the world, from warm, tropical lagoons to polar seas. These sharks are responsible for a third to a half of the 100-odd shark attacks on humans every year, but the strikes are usually unintentional and rarely prove fatal. In recent years it has become a popular catch and release target for sport fishermen. The white shark is found in temperate waters throughout the world's oceans, and it is an important, though not common, predator in California's coastal habitats.

During the 1960’s the United States Navy also trained Bottlenose Dolphins to incapacitate large sharks by butting them in their gill pouches. In New Zealand it is most abundant on the east coast of the South Island. But the connection is not limited to meeting and greeting. "Care and feeding of your 'aumakua was an essential part of this symbiotic relationship," said Silva. "The 'aumakua shark would drive off all bad sharks and carry its mortal family members to safety, but in return, family members were responsible for scraping the barnacles off the shark's back, and making sure it was well."

Its underparts are entirely yellow and it displays dark bars spotted on yellowish green colored sides. This means need to keep moving all the time! This striking blue fish was found in the waters of Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea, a region of pristine reef environments and home to a huge number of fish species (1,040). Shad often survive to spawn twice or more. Sharks are often caught incidentally by fishing gear set for other types of fish—such as tuna longlines, trawls and seine nets—and many will simply be discarded.
