Rare angel shark in Anglesey waters
One of the World’s rarest sharks has been spotted swimming in our Anglesey waters! The mysterios angel sharks (Squatina Squatina) were classified as being critically endangered in 2010, but sightings earlier this year suggest that a small population is living off the Anglesey coast.
There are 23 species of angel shark in total. They are also known as monk or monkfish by fishermen, although they are in fact a type of shark, which is noted by their use of fins. Angel sharks like to eat other fish, crustaceans, and molluscs. Most types grow to a length of 1.5 m (5 ft).
