The Australian Museum is delighted to have received a fine specimen in the last few days. The newly acquired specimen is a juvenile male of 1.26 m in length. It was caught by a commercial fisher off Eden in water several hundred metres deep. The Australian Museum’s Ichthyology Collection now contains four Goblin Shark specimens collected in Australian waters. Two specimens (including the recent addition, AMS I.46541-001) are juveniles just over 1 m in length; the other two are much larger at 3.6 m and 3.8 m long.
