The first ever case of breeding of zebra bullhead shark in captivity recorded in Primorye
«Because of the breeding programme, implemented by the scientists and biologists at the Primorsky Aquarium, a striped bullhead shark has laid eggs. This is the first case in the world of breeding sharks of this species in captivity,» the message said. Five zebra bullhead sharks were brought to the Aquarium in June 2016. A few months later the scientists separated the largest female from other fish and started feeding her according to a special diet. Last June, a male was put in the same space as the female, and then, a year later, the latter laid eggs. The scientists have noted that laying of eggs is an indication in itself of quality of living conditions that the sharks live in.
