Sažetak

This paper is describing a new finding of Carcharhinus plumbeus (Nardo, 1927) caught at the
insular shelves off the Sazan Island at the depth of 120 m, which is the southernmost record for a
sandbar shark in the Adriatic Sea. The individual had a partially healed umbilical scar and is considered
as neonatal. Examined shark appeared in good body condition with showed no macroscopic
signs of diseases or macroscopic parasites. Detailed morphometric measurements are compared
with four neonate and juvenile specimens from the north and central Adriatic Sea and are provided
in the paper. Despite it is not possible to establish a certain conclusion on whether our specimen
was born in the studied area or elsewhere, presented finding provides the very first evidence that
neonatal sandbar sharks can be found along the coast of Albania. Knowing the exact locations and
movements of both neonates and juveniles is of high importance for the effective long-term in-situ
conservation.
