Dogfish is a name applied to a number of small sharks found in the northeast Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and the Mediterranean Sea. It is applied especially to those in the three families Scyliorhinidae, Dalatiidae, and Squalidae. Although often used in reference to Scyliorhinus canicula, the name is applied loosely and does not signify a close taxonomic relationship.
