According to Ilham Demir, President of the Antalya Fish Brokers and Entrepreneurs Association, there are many different types of sharks in the Mediterranean Sea. But this one is very rare.

Previously, Big Asia reported that We managed to catch a katran in the waters of Georgia. A one and a half meter long shark was discovered in the Black Sea during an expedition.

The length of male katrans is usually 60-90 centimeters, females - 75-105 centimeters. Experts explain that earlier these chordates were caught for production purposes. Now they are so rare that they want to be included in the Red Book.

2.5 thousand species of animals live in the Black Sea, including katrans or long-spined prickly sharks. In addition, small katrans, hammerhead sharks, as well as marten sharks are found off the coast. They pose no danger to humans.
