Marine biologists have actually captured footage of a substantial sixgill shark swimming off the coast of Ireland– marking the first time its been filmed in shallow European waters.The 13-foot-long prehistoric looking sixgill shark (Hexanchus griseus) was found off County Clare on the west coast, at a relatively shallow depth of about 200 feet.A pinnacle predator, the sixgill shark typically lives in dark waters off the continental shelf, at depths of up to 8,200 feet (2,500 metres). This highlights how Ireland is a biodiversity hotspot for all skates, rays and sharks. Basking sharks are discovered regularly cruising by, and it is likewise one of the last refugia on earth for the critically threatened flapper skate– the largest skate in the world. A freshly identified species of sixgill shark, the Atlantic sixgill shark (Hexanchus vitulus), settled the argument as to whether bigeye sixgill sharks from the Atlantic constitute a separate species in February 2018. Bigeye sixgill shark (Hexanchus nakamurai): An obscure, reasonably big shark up to 5.9 feet (1.8 metres) long.
