local.seafdecaqd.extractAustralia has successfully hatched its first shark born via artificial insemination with hopes that the development can ultimately be used to help breed threatened species, an aquarium said yesterday. Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium said the brown banded bamboo shark pup was born on March 3, ending a process which began in September when aquarists collected a semen sample from a shark in Mooloolaba in north eastern Australia. This was flown to the southern city of Melbourne and inseminated into the mother the same day making the pup the first shark to be born globally via a live semen sample transported from one facility to another, Sea Life said.en
