Greay smoothhound released from a fishing net.

2014 NORTHERN BAJA ARTISANAL SHARK FISHERY EXPEDITION

This was a short side-expedition to the sleepy fishing village of San Felipe in Northern Baja to try to get images of sicklefin smoothhound sharks and other endemic smoothhound species that are over-fished in the Sea of Cortez.

Although on this occasion we did not find our target species, we were able to recover and release some grey smoothhound sharks from commercial fishermen's nets.
