Baby Dogfish

Here is a picture of a baby dogfish. When we used to handle fish, many times the big female dogfish sharks would spill four or five of these baby dogfish out of her belly when we were dumping them into the big vats used to transport the fish to the processors. They all had these amniotic sacs attached to them.

This particular dogfish was mixed in with a tote of lobsters that came in. It brought back memories of those summers when we used to fill trailer loads full of dogfish every day right through the summer and into the fall.
