Chlamydoselachus anguineus

Garman, 1884


Andy Horton That's the Frilled Shark

Andy Horton November 2000 Bill Chadwick reported a rare deep water shark with the name in the book as the Frilled Shark, Chlamydoselachus anguineus. It was landed in Killybegs, County Donegal, Ireland, by Michael Flannery, on board the Emerald Dawn (out of Kerry I think). This specimen (one out of 3) was sent to the Museum of Natural History in Dublin for examination. These animals were caught as part of an on going deep sea survey in search for commercially viable deep water species run by BIM (Board Iasca Mhara). All the information was confirmed by John Hackett of BIM. Details by Grainne Mooney http://www.glaucus.org.uk/sharks-4.htm
