Bamboo Sharks live in shallow, rocky areas, and do not have to keep moving to force water through their gills to breathe like most shark species. They lazily search the seafloor for food, which includes fish and invertebrates. These sharks do well in captivity and are often found in aquariums.

The blue shark is currently listed as Near Threatened. The main threats include shark finning, being caught unintentionally by dragnet and longline fishing methods, and being caught intentionally by sport fishermen. Conservation efforts include prohibitions on finning in certain areas, limits on how many blue sharks can be unintentionally or intentionally caught and the establishment of carefully managed shark fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean.
