pímpido, cerdo marino, L. Oxynotus centrina, Eng. angularough shark. It belongs to the Squalidae (dogfish) family. It is similar to other species for its rough skin but the flesh is tastier making it a better gift than its relatives. It is a fresh water fish abundant in Guipúzcoa and Bolumburu (Asturias) and at the same time a saltwater fish living in the Atlantic from the coasts of the British Isles to Senegal and the Mediterranean. It was commonly eaten in medieval Spain. [Castro. Alimentación. 1996:325; and Corbera. 1998:56]

Today it is an endangered species.
