Sharks

 

This exhibition, created by the Museum on a small budget, aims to take advantage of the unfair, bad notoriety of sharks and the popularity of this subject to raise awareness of the biological importance of these fish and to contradict some of the more common beliefs. Graphic documentation will be used to show that mythical sharks such as the man-eating shark (Carcharodon carcharias) are frequent on our coasts, well known amongst the fishermen and sea folk, and which have registered the largest known specimens in the Mediterranean. Osteological material of some of the most frequent species in our waters is also displayed and presents some of the more than 40 species of sharks in the Mediterranean to the visitor. A spectacular three-dimensional element is also included in the exhibition as is also the jawbone of a man-eating shark fished in the 60s by some Majorcan fishermen.
