Tiger Shark Teeth Morphology/ Identification: G. cuvier is the extant (living) Tiger shark. This species is thought to be a more dynamic filter-feeder than, for example, the basking shark, actively sucking food in through their vast mouths and passing the water over the gill arches, where prey are retained and then swallowed (5). Northern pike is widely distributed in continental United States and occupied much of the range of Canada and Alaska.

Indo-Pacific: scattered records from the Red Sea and Natal, South Africa to China, New Zealand, and the Caroline, Hawaiian, Phoenix and Line islands. Spiny dogfish are long lived and non-migratory; as a result, heavy fishing pressure in a given area will lower the population level of this slow growing, low reproductive species quite rapidly. Little is known about the reproduction of blue marlin.

Donsol Bay, Philippines, attracts huge numbers of whale sharks because of the high levels of plankton found in its water. It is not aggressive by nature but will bite when provoked. It can be separated from most others of this flattened and plated group by the presence of a tail fin and two dorsal fins. They are known to be fond of preying on schools of squid. Most frequently they are found at depths of 200 to 300 feet, living within a few feet of the bottom.
