Scalloped hammerhead sharks, Sphyrna lewini, were listed in 2008 by  the IUCN as Near Threatened. They are commonly taken in fisheries, fished using longlines, nets, and trawl nets.  They are fished as a “game” fish, and also caught as by-catch in longline fisheries targeting other species.

Scalloped hammerhead shark pups grow slowly compared to other sharks. The pups occupy shallow coastal nursery grounds that are heavily exploited by inshore fisheries, and are particularly vulnerable.

Scalloped hammerhead shark liver is used for vitamins, the fins for soup, the meat for human consumption and the remains for fishmeal.

Be aware that many of these photos are graphic and disturbing.
