ABSTRACT
Shark, a fish found in almost all oceans of the world but chiefly in warm water. Sharks inhabit both deep and shallow water. Open-water species must move constantly to breathe and stay afloat. Some migratory species swim up river to spawn. Sharks range in size from less than 2 feet (60 cm) to 60 feet (18 m) or more. Large sharks may weigh more than 13 tons (11,800 kg).
