TRIAKIDAE View in CoL View at ENA

The smooth-hounds were included in the Carcharhinidae by Irvine but are generally considered a separate family (Nelson, 1994). One species was recorded by Irvine (see below); another species Galeorhinus galeus (Linnaeus, 1758) may also occur off the mainland coast of tropical West Africa, although primarily an anti-tropical species (Compagno, 1984).
