SHARK IN A JAR - SQUALUS ACANTHIAS

THE SCIENCE

The spiny dogfish shark, Squalus acanthias, is found in temperate waters worldwide and is one of the best-known sharks in the world. Males grow to just over 3 feet on average, reaching maturity at around 11 years, while females may grow over 5 feet long and reach maturity after around 20 years. This is a viviparous species of shark, i.e. one that gives birth to live young, and it is regularly fished for food, fish oil, fertilizer, pet food, and scientific study.

THE STORY

These baby sharks are not fished for this purpose; they are by-products of commercial fishing. At times, female sharks are caught with developing young inside of them; these are collected and preserved. The Shark in a Jar is one of our most popular items with kids! Preserved in 70% isopropyl alcohol dyed blue for a captivating “oceanic” aesthetic, it makes a nifty piece of educational decor. Grab one today!
