The false catshark, Pseudotriakis microdon, is a large-bodied, poorly known deepwater shark, with a global distribution, except for the eastern Pacific and South Atlantic oceans. Here we report the first record of the false catshark from the southeastern Atlantic. The specimen, estimated to be approximately 290 cm in total length, was observed via an unmanned submersible 700 m depth off the western slope of Valdivia Seamount (26.2° S, 6.3° E).

Local environment‐driven adaptive evolution in a marine invasive ascidian (Molgula manhattensis)
TLDR
It is confirmed that differed local environments could rapidly drive adaptive divergence among invasive populations and leave detectable genomic signatures in marine invaders, and redundancy analysis and variance partitioning analysis suggest that local environmental factors represent crucial evolutionary forces in driving adaptive divergence.

First description of deep-water elasmobranch assemblages in the Exuma Sound, The Bahamas
TLDR
This study represents the first ecological investigation of deep-water elasmobranch assemblages in The Bahamas, and the first assessment of species-specific resilience to capture for all of the species captured, and highlights the importance of utilising strategic geographic locations that provide easy access to deep water, in combination with traditional expedition-based deep-ocean science, to accelerate the acquisition of fundamental ecological and biological insights.
Comments on the Reproductive Mode of the False Cat Shark Pseudotriakis microdon
TLDR
The mode of embryonic nutrition of the false cat shark appears to differ from previously described modes in elasmobranchs and appears to represent a modified form of oophagy in which the yolk reserves of the external yolk sac are replenished and used subsequently in the last stages of gestation.

The Real Bounty: Marine Biodiversity in the Pitcairn Islands
TLDR
High levels of regional endemism in the fish assemblages across the islands are found, with the highest level observed at Ducie (56% by number), and the need for immediate protection is suggested.
Sharks of the World
TLDR
Incredible photographs offer a glimpse into the shark's wide jaws and toothy mouth, and of an incredible variety of species, including the handsome zebra shark, sand tiger, and nurse shark.
