WQ0245-D. A Blue Shark (Prionace glauca) glides through the open sea. Once quite abundant and widespread, this species has suffered dramatic reduction of numbers due to shark fishing. In some regions populations are now classified as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in some regions as a result of intensive fishing for their long fins, which are highly valued as an ingredient in shark fin soup popular in Asian markets. Azores, Portugal, Atlantic Ocean. <br />
