Can anyone identify this fish? I caught it at the Alameda Rock Wall and have been unable to find out what kind of shark it is.

I think that is a juvenile sevengill shark (Notorynchus cepedianus). It has many other names...spotted cowshark, sevengill cowshark, broadnose sevengill shark, etc. That is a baby...probably hatched in the last 2 months and is feeding well off other baby sharks. They get much bigger, up to 10 feet!

We ca;; them 7 gill sharks. Not sure that is exactly what they are but that is what we call it when we catch them. It is rare 1 in about 100 sharks from shore. They are way cooler then the leopard and sand sharks ;)

Yep, those are baby 7 gill sharks. The can get pretty big and can attack people if big enough.

I caught a similar fish to that a couple of months ago. Didn't know what it was and I didn't have a camera in sight so I threw the booger back. Thanks for identifying the fish. Now I'll know if I catch one again.

Yup Cabbage hit it on the head. We caught a lot of them this year hali/striper fishing.

Bretmoua,

I am sure you are asked this alot but what kind of fish are you holding? It looks fake or prehistoric. Also, where did you catch it.
