Japanese Sawshark (Pristiophorus japonicus)

…a species of sawshark (Pristiophoridae) which occurs in the northwest Pacific Ocean around Japan, Korea, and northern China, where it inhabits the sandy or muddy bottoms of the continental shelves (at depths of 50-800 m). Japanese sawsharks are primarily “benthic” and will feed on a wide range of small bottom dwelling invertebrates and fish.
