Granular Dogfish

About the Granular Dogfish

The granular dogfish is a poorly known deepwater shark found off the coast of Chile and the Falkland Islands at about 300 to 500 m depth.

It is a small fin with two dorsal fins and no anal fin. They can reach lengths of 61 cm. They’re presumed to be ovoviviparous.

They’re seldom seen except when occasionally caught be deep-sea shrimp fisheries. There isn’t enough information to assess population health. The IUCN considers them Data Deficient.
