Biology The diet of roughskin dogfish consists of small fishes. Very little is known about development in the species. Males mature at 72-84 cm (29-34 in) and females at 102 cm (41 in). The maximum reported size is 104 cm (42 in). More

Merrett described the roughskin dogfish as Squalus asper in 1973. Shortly afterwards, this name was changed to the currently valid Cirrhigaleus asper (Merrett 1973). The genus name Cirrhigaleus is derived from the Latin "cirrus" which means curl fringe and the Greek "galeo" meaning a shark. More
