Age range of radiocarbon dating
The type, amount, and duration of parental care the young receive are unknown, but scientists speculate that, like other shark species, Greenland sharks are independent from birth.
Extrapolations are ages derived by regression from age/size relationships (e.g.
The species is primarily found in the cold-water environments of the Arctic Ocean and North Atlantic, from Baffin Bay eastward to the Barents Sea, but its range also extends southward to the North Sea and the waters adjacent to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States.
Bulky, with a rounded snout, small fins relative to body size, and gray to brown coloration, Greenland sharks are similar to spiny dogfish ( The Greenland shark is one of the largest cartilaginous fishes.
Stephenson and Demetry 1995) or other mathematical or graphical methods.
Ranges of ages derived by extrapolations are welcome and can be accommodated in the database.
