The king of our submarine world

Blacktip reef shark (Carcharhinus melanopterus))


Tropical and subtropical seas. It is one of the most common reef sharks. It can be commonly observed while wading or snorkelling in lagoons.


Predominantly small fish; it also eats crustaceans, molluscs and cephalopods.

Two dorsal fins, of which the second one is fairly large; a round nose and oval eyes. All fins have black or dark-brown tips. The shark’s back is of beige, brownish or brown colour; its belly is white. Its top teeth are narrow with a crooked tip; its bottom teeth are also narrow but their edges are serrated. Its top jaw has 23-28 teeth; its bottom jaw has 21-28 teeth. It lives alone or in smaller groups. It is not aggressive and, driven by curiosity, often moves in the vicinity of scuba divers. Its meat is sold fresh, dried, salted, smoked or frozen. Its fins are a precious ingredient for soups. Its liver is a source of oil.


According to IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) it is almost an endangered species.
