Sevengill Shark Goes To Fish Prison

A 9-foot-3-inch female sevengill shark is the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s latest addition, just in time for the busy Memorial Day weekend.

Sevengill sharks are found in waters up to 2,700 feet deep off the Pacific coast from Southern California to British Columbia. They feed along the ocean bottom much of the time, and are believed to enter coastal bays to give birth.

Yah, but what’s it eat?

The sharpnose seven-gill shark feeds on bony fish, rays, small sharks, squid and crustaceans.
