School sharks beached on Terschelling island


This video from California in the USA is called Soupfin Shark (Galeorhinus galeus). As eating shark fin soup should stop, I prefer the other name for this species, school shark.

School sharks are rare in the Netherlands. However, recently two individuals were found dead, stranded on Terschelling island.

First, one on 19 December was found on the north coast.

Then, on 21 december one in the south-west.
