Bight ghostshark

provided by wikipedia EN

The bight ghostshark or blackfin ghostshark (Hydrolagus lemures) is a species of chimaera endemic to the waters of Australia from Queensland to Western Australia where it is found near the ocean floor of the continental shelf and upper slope. Its depth range is between 146 and 510 m (479 and 1,673 ft) from the surface. It reaches a maximum total length of 88.0 cm (34.6 in). Reproduction is oviparous and eggs are encased in horny shells.[2] It is listed as least concern by the International Union for Conservation of Nature because, despite its limited range, it is abundant throughout[1] and of low economic value.[2]
