The University of Delawares Ocean Exploration, Remote Sensing, Biogeography (ORB) Lab team snapped the photo
while on an expedition to recapture sharks carrying electronic data tags as part of the labs research on sand tiger sharks. We caught one large female but we were not expecting to catch her like this! This unlucky smooth dogfish couldnt resist the bait and fell victim to one of the bays top predators, the ORB Lab wrote on the Facebook post that accompanied the photo. The dogfish did not survive the encounter, but the sand tiger shark was released after it was given a small identification tag.
