This isolated initiative was conducted on an experimental basis, mostly because using meshes of 320 mm and 280 mm by national vessels were, in the early 2000's, a common practice for fishing angel sharks
, a pattern which remained unchanged until 2004/2005.

They have all sorts of things: sand, tiger and angel sharks

Furthermore, Natanson (1984) and Natanson and Cailliet (1990), working with OTC-injected Pacific angel sharks
, Squatina californica, found no correlation between centrum band deposition and any temporal cycle and concluded that bands were deposited in response to somatic growth.
