Mud sharks caught in the north

Local fishermen catch two spiny dogfish off the coast of Famagusta


Local fishermen in the north caught two mud sharks on Monday, with reports saying the spiny dogfish are not found naturally in the area.

According to Turkish Cypriot media, two spiny dogfish were caught in the nets of local fishermen on Monday morning, about a kilometre off the Famagusta coast at Palm Beach hotel.

The spiny dogfish, a carnivorous animal surviving on a purely meat-based diet, were found at 50 metres below the water surface.

The two mud sharks were brought to shore, with at least one of them measuring about 47 inches.

It was not immediately clear whether the mud sharks were in a migratory pattern but reports said the species is not known to reside in Cypriot waters.
