Apristurus albisoma

Apristurus albisoma, the whitish catshark, is a catshark of the family Scyliorhinidae. The area of occupancy of this small benthic endemic shark is presumed very limited (less than 2,000 km²), being restricted to a narrow depth band on insular and seamount slopes. It has only been reported from a few locations. There is concern that this species may be taken as un-utilised bycatch by deepwater trawl fisheries and that, like other deepwater species, it may not be sufficiently fecund to withstand exploitation pressure in these fisheries.
