Elasmo-Morph specialise in shark jaw, skeleton and skull cleaning, as well as mounting and restoration of old badly cleaned jaws.
For more than 30 years, I have been studying and preparing shark specimens for collectors.
I am a member of the Oceania Chondrichthyan Society, based in Australia, which facilitates the education, conservation and scientific research of Chondrichthyan fishes, a group that covers sharks, skates, rays and chimaeras.
I am also a member of the Shark Research Committee, based in the US, as well as the AMCS – The Australian Marine Conservation Society.
These days, I am a strong proponent of catch and release fishing. The majority of the fresh jaws I receive are the result of sharks which cannot be revived and released.
I also work with museums and collectors to restore old, damaged and often badly cleaned jaws and specimens that have been hidden away for years.
