Yesterday, I received a request of a pdf file for one of my recent articles. The request was sent from the administrator (in Germany) of the private database of literature about cartilaginous fishes. This database is called 'shark-reference.com', and is very organized for a private database.
Apart from this literature database, there are many shark-related activity, especially in Germany. My knowledge is limited, but it is probably mainly because of the campaign for shark protection. We can easily find shark books, calendars, and products for kids in shops in town. Personally, I am collecting books for kids about sharks, irrespective of where they are published.
