zona tiburon The Bacota shark has a widespread tropical and temperate range including the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans as well as the Medditeranean and Black seas.  It is a coastal shark, and can grow as large as 11 feet.  These are of the Requiem Shark family, and although classified as "coastal," they prefer habitat  at least 100 meters in depth. they are also known as the Copper Shark, New Zealand Whaler, Bronze Whaler, Narrowtooth Shark, and Cocktail Shark.

This video is from Leo Martinez in Argentina, an Extreme Kayak Fishing practioner also involved with shark conservation efforts in Argentina. 

Leo submitted with a note: "In this video I managed to capture a female bacota shark of about 3 meters and 140 kg. While it is not the longest shark I've captured, it was undoubtedly the most imposing and fat. I hope you like the video and ask all to share it so that each day ZONA TIBURON will grow!"  Follow Leo at https://www.facebook.com/leozonatiburon
