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.

|This is a simple project
or request to members and readers of this Bulletin. It is to take pictures
of the coast when you are next down on the shore. Even general views have
value, but ideally we would like photographs of the shore showing the type
of rock, topography and rock pools, dominant fauna, and information that
cannot be described adequately by words on the Report
by Bob Alexander, Weymouth)
The name of the particular
coast should be included and the grid reference, if known. Print photographs
can be included in Exhibitions
and on the BMLSS Web Sites and electronic publications. Electronic images
in *.JPG format can also be considered for the web site. They should not
exceed 100K in size.
