LATIN NAME: Scyliorhinus canicula
The small spotted catshark, as its name suggests, is both small and spotted. It spends its days resting on sand banks.
It lives on sandy, gravel or muddy bottoms at depths of 10 to 400 metres.
The small-spotted catshark hunts at night and has a very varied diet. It feeds on gastropod molluscs, cephalopods, crustaceans, worms and small fish.
It measures between 50 and 70 cm on average.
