Sharks reproduce again in Dutch waters


This 2015 video is about a school shark caught as bycatch by a Dutch shrimp fishing ship. The shark was marked for research and released.

Dutch baby sharks

Thursday, June 23, 2016

For the first time it has been established that a shark species reproduces in Dutch waters. Researchers from Wageningen IMARES and Sportvisserij Netherlands write that in the Journal of Fish Biology.

It concerns the starry smooth-hound shark. In the Oosterschelde and the Zeeland Delta in recent years countless young have been seen. It is suspected that they were born in the North Sea. ..

The researchers suspect that school sharks, a much larger species, also reproduce in our waters. …

This week also a petition was launched to enforce better protection for sharks. Sign too, and check out the action page.
