Abstract

Thresher sharks are distributed circumglobally in the Atlantic, Pacific, Mediterranean and Indian Oceans. Thresher sharks include the common thresher (Alopias vulpinus), bigeye thresher (A. superciliosus), and pelagic thresher (A. pelagicus), the former being the largest. Unusual landings of this shark by long liners were noticed along the Malabar coast in 2005. The details of its fishery and some observations made on the biology are presented.
