These small-spotted catshark pups hatched at the Aquarium from egg cases that were rescued from Maltese fish markets.
The egg cases are removed from the females, brought to Malta National Aquarium and taken care of until they hatch! Then after 6-9 months, the sharks are released back into the waters.
The other small-spotted catshark and nursehound shark pups are expected to hatch in the coming days/weeks. So far, over 300 sharks have been released!
