Being a small gregarious marine creature the Dogfish Sharks are the dwellers of deep sea carpet water. They can be found cuddling in a group of hundred to one thousand of Dogfishsharks in the sea, roaming from one place to another specially searching the temperate water of 5 to15 degree Celsius temperature.

The length of the Dogfish Shark does not exceed 2 fit and is not as aggressive as are the other species of the sharks. As far as the availability of Dogfish Shark in the sea water is concerned, it is found in abundance in the sea water and is not supposed to be a rarest species of the sharks, as are some other sharks.

They are also called the spiny dogfish, piked dogfish, skittle dogfish, spotted dogfish, white-spotted dogfish, codshark, and thorn dogshark. Its poisonous dorsal fins work as a protective shield in helping it protect it from any kind of external aggression and attack.

The Dogfish Shark, being calm and not harmful for the humans, is used in the laboratories as well for a variety of lab tests needed to be conducted on the sea mammals.

Having the smaller snouts and small eyes the Dogfish Shark bears a deep gray and white spots over entire parts of its body. Dogfish Shark prefers to eat only the smaller fishes, squids and octopus.
