Salmon sharks wash up on California coasts
by Alison Hawkes on August 20, 2012
Dozens of salmon sharks wash up on California coasts, dead or dying, each year. Often mistaken as white sharks or mango sharks, the salmon shark appears to be hit by deadly bacteria, especially the juveniles, according to research by the Pelagic Shark Research Foundation.
If you sight an animal in distress along the shore line, contact 911 and request the Fish and Game Department, or call Sean at the PSRF at (831) 600 5214.
