Chimaera ogilbyi (Waite, 1898)
Ogilby's ghostshark (Hydrolagus ogilbyi), also known as the whitefish, is a species of chimaera endemic to the waters of Australia. It lives near the ocean floor on the continental shelf and continental slope 120–350 m (390–1,150 ft) deep. It reaches a maximum size of 85.0 cm (33.5 in). Reproduction is oviparous and eggs are encased in horny shells. It reaches maturity between 64–70 cm (25–28 in) in length. It is listed as a Vulnerable species by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) due to steep declines in population in areas affected by trawling.
