Liver and the meat
Shark liver oil is obtained from  shark  that are caught for food purposes and are living in cold, deep oceans. The liver oil from sharks has been used by fishermen for centuries as a folk remedy for general health. It is purportedly useful for healing wounds, sores, irritations of the respiratory tract and the alimentary canal and for lymph node swelling.Traditionally, Bermudians rely on unique shark-oil based "barometers" to predict storms and other severe weather. Small bottles of oil are hung outside the boat
