Simon Parker I didn't know Scyliorhinus canicula was considered to be at risk?

Jon Chamberlain You're gonna need a bigger boat...

Jon Chamberlain Whelk bait? Please tell me you're joking?

Simon Parker While we're doing sharks: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-18796593

Simon Parker Skegness Pier only reaches the sea at high tide so they must be coming very close in with the tide.

Cara Gammage Good grief! A sensible article wuoting a sensible angler! Gob smacked!

Paula Lightfoot Had two great dives in the 'Coquet to St Marys' proposed Marine Conservation Zone today! My favourite was seeing a catshark - never seen one on an east coast dive before :-) More pics to follow, hopefully from the other divers too, hint hint!

Lee McKitten Hi Paula, I had a feeling today when you mentioned the cat shark that you were referring to what I wrongly thought was a dogfish. I actually saw one of these in browns bay last year. I think I logged it in my dive log. I'll have a look at the date etc and let you know.

Paula Lightfoot They are commonly called dogfish too - great if you've got another record!

Nicola Faulks Scyliorhinus canicula LOL!!! ;-)

João Pedro Silva First time I tried this spot in Cascais, Portugal, to look for Scyliorhinus canicula. Did find a couple (a few meters next to us there were dozens...) but very shy and swam away before I could photograph them. Lots of these sponges, though. Any ideas?

Bernard Picton It is certainly close to Hemimycale columella, but those pore-sieves are very angular in shape. I'd need to see the spicules.
