There are more than 350 different kinds of sharks, ranging in size from less than ten inches to over 50 feet. Well known shark species include the great white shark, tiger shark, blue shark, mako shark and hammerhead shark.
Shark meat is tender and often compared to tuna. It can be eaten and prepared in different ways depending on your preferences; shark-fin soup is considered a delicacy in China and whilst in Iceland and Greenland ‘halarl’ (shark cured and hung to dry) is a popular local dish.
Shark meat is usually grilled, but it can also be prepared in the oven and served on kebabs or in cold salads.
