In Mallorca, 155 nursehound sharks (Scyliorhinus stellaris) have been born in captivity from shark egg cases found by local fishermen, as part of the collaborative project “Small Sharks – Stellaris Action” in which Save The Med Foundation participates. 16 of the larger pups have now been released in the Cabrera National Park and more will be released in other protected areas the near future. The scientists hope to use the knowledge gained through this pilot project to help recover other shark species in the future.
