Galeorhinus galeus (Aquarium of the Bay)
Author D Ross Robertson

The school shark (Galeorhinus galeus) is a houndshark of the family Triakidae, and the only member of the genus Galeorhinus. Common names also include tope shark, soupfin shark, and snapper shark. It is found worldwide in temperate seas at depths down to about 800 m. It can grow to nearly 2 m long. It feeds both in midwater and near the seabed, and its reproduction is ovoviviparous. This shark is caught in fisheries for its flesh, its fins, and its liver, which has a very high vitamin A content.
