sixgill shark stock footage

A short video clip of a sixgill shark.

This is some of our more rare underwater footage. Each year Subvision Productions participates in the annual shark survey week in Barkley Sound. The aim is to find and catalogue shark in this area. The main focus is the sixgill shark (Hexanchus griseus). This shark has been around for approx. 150 million year and although its distribution is world-wide, it is a rarely seen shark by divers. In the last 10 years we have gathered quit a bit of footage of sixgill sharks, ranging from male adults measuring 12 ft to 2 1/2 feet long juveniles. All in their natural habitat and no feeding or other manipulation. 

Only in the summer months do sixgill sharks come shallow enough to been seen by divers. The rest of the year they spend at depth too great for scuba based encounters.  This underlines the difficulty to get this footage and the research connected with it.
