A shark was observed Friday evening in the inner harbor of Concarneau, at the foot of the ramparts of the Walled City. In view of its size and appearance, it was certainly a young porbeagle shark (Lamna nasus), according to Éric Stéphan, coordinator and co-founder of Apecs, an association which lists in particular the reports of sharks in Breton waters.
The species, found throughout the continental shelf, can live from the surface to a depth of 700 meters. In Europe, it can be seen a little closer to the coast in a few areas, notably in the Côtes-d´Armor.
Caught until 2010 for its flesh, this fish is considered critically endangered in European waters and generally lives offshore in the North Atlantic.
There is no need to worry about this summer: we can always bathe serenely in Concarneau since this shark is harmless to humans.
The association called for witnesses to confirm this observation and invites residents to scan the harbor waters to see if the shark still frequents the area.
