Tope Shark
Galeorhinus galeus

Until the 1950s’, Tope sharks were still reproducing in Berlengas. The most emblematic site was the Cações cove (Tope shark cove), named after the impressive numbers of Tope shark gathering there during spawning. Unfortunately, today Tope sharks doesn´t reproduce in Berlengas anymore, probably as a result of the over-fishing.
