Hi Jen,  It has taken me a while, but I have finally added a factsheet for this species.

Hi Jen, Yes, it's a great shot.  I think we will be seeing plenty of Galapagos Sharks during the Kermadec Islands expedition.  As for the factsheet - alas, there isn't one on the site ... yet.  I'm heading off tomorrow so can't add it right away, but will do so after I return to work in early June.

Wow! What a fantastic image. Is there a factsheet for this species on the website? Very interested to know more.
