KOMPAS.com – Scientists have just discovered the big shark "shark nest" in Irish waters. This socket is unusual, since the prey fish use damaged coral reefs to hide their eggs.
This rare finding was obtained after researchers carried out a long-range operation to explore Irish waters. They drive to a depth of 750 meters.
In these observations, scientists observed the nest inhabited by a group of black cats. Blackmouth catsharks itself is one of the small sharks throughout the North East of the Atlantic.
This species is not found alone. They are marine larvae with sharks, which are usually rare and rare.

By observation, there was no visible shark baby bathing place. However, marine researchers (SeaRover) wanted to register all the events that took place.
The goal is to watch shark lobster eggs.
"Shark puppies are not visible in this area, and it is believed that adult sharks can use damaged coral reefs and open rocks of carbonate to place their eggs," said Navy Guidance Chief Scientist David O & # 39; Sullivan IndependentMonday (11/11/2018).
"(As) healthy coral reefs around it can act as a sanctuary for shark kids when they're here," he added.
Sullivan added that further "nest" studies will address a number of important issues regarding the ecosystem of deep-sea sharks in Irish waters.
This rare finding was announced at the INFOMAR Seabed Mapping Workshop in Consale, Ireland.
"We are pleased that these results were announced at this event, showing how important it is to map our seabed habitats to understand and manage huge and valuable marine resources," said O & # 39; Sullivan.
"Our data and team continue to greatly promote the use of ocean riches," he continued.
