I'm sorry, sea-shepherd, but this picture and the other of negaprion and galeocerdo were taken by me in Bahamas about 10 meters deep.
All my pics are taken underwater in open waters.
Ciao.

Diese Bild wurde wohl ganz offensichtlich im Aquarium Zella-Mehlis gemacht. Hierbei handelt es sich aber nicht um Negaprion brevirostris sondern um Negaprion acutidens, dem Sichelflossen Zitronenhai. Nach eigenen Angaben des Aquariumbetreibers wurden das Tier im Indischen Ozean gefangen, wo nachweislich Negaprion brevirostris nicht vorkommt!
