Squalus acanthias, also known as dogfish, is considered trash fish in the United
Squalus acanthias, also known as dogfish, is considered trash fish in the United States, but is valued for its flesh in England and its fins in Asia. Terry Stockwell of Boothbay, a fisherman, has teamed up with Elizabeth Sheehan of Coastal Enterprises, Inc., to test the marketability of dogfish. The project is funded through grants from CEI, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Maine Community Foundation, and is designed as a way to deal with increased restrictions on groundfishing. Stockwell and Sheehan are giving the shark away initially, and if a market develops they will charge for it. Details.
