PORBEAGLE SHARK DISTRIBUTION | QUEBEC AND MARITIME PROVINCES
ALL OBSERVATIONS LOGGED AND VERIFIED BY GEERG. CONTACT US FOR REFERENCES.
In Canada, the distribution of the porbeagle shark extends from Newfoundland & Labrador to the Bay of Fundy. It uses the entire water column on the continental shelf from the surface to the bottom (to 366 m / 1,200 ft). Juveniles are found further inshore.
ST. LAWRENCE: The presence of Lamna nasus in the St. Lawrence Gulf and Estuary is neither recent nor is it related to climate change.
