What do sharks smell like?

I read this (displayed below) and that’s the question that popped into my head. Anyone? And I don’t mean a dead shark, either. Anything marine and dead always smells like fish. So what’s a live shark smell like?

I personally thought it smelled like urine, when an uncle caught one and pulled it out of the water. This could be explained by the high concentration of urea they maintain in their body, but I haven't found any credible sources tieing the two together.
