Chondrichthyan Tree of Life Project, Gavin Naylor

Selected by Pacific Shark Research Center and Gavin Naylor for the Chondrichthyan Tree of Life Project to collect data from rare and deep-sea species in the Southern Indian Ocean in 2012. All specimens were bycatch accidentally caught by a licensed fishery. At least eight new species of deep-sea sharks were discovered during this trip.
