SUNY Cobleskill’s Dr. Chip Cotton Helps Discover, Describe new Deep Sea Shark

SUNY Cobleskill assistant professor of fisheries and aquaculture Dr. Chip Cotton is part of a team that has discovered and described a new species of deep-sea shark. Squalus hawaiiensis, or the Hawaiian spurdog, is a dogfish shark. Researchers are hopeful the species’ discovery will lead to improved conservation efforts to protect the biodiversity off and around the Hawaiian Islands.

Check out the PHYS.org article to read more about the discovery of the Hawaiian spurdog and the team responsible for describing it in November’s edition of the peer-reviewed journal “ZooKeys.”
