Ok - I'm not sure I would define it as "Amazing" or "Incredible"

As all the species of sharks that they sell - have been breeding in captivity for years.

So far the species of sharks that they offer -are the following.

- Horn Shark (Heterodontus francisci)
- Coral Catshark (Atelomycterus marmoratus)
- Epaulette (Hemiscyllium ocellatum)
- White-spotted Bamboo (Chiloscyllium plagiosum)
- Nurse Shark (Ginglymostoma cirratum)

All except the Nurse are capable of small ponds -under 2,000 gallons. The Nurse requires huge swimming pool size ponds (over 25,000 gallons).

Personal I'm glad to a company actually interested in breed sharks - instead of just catching them out the ocean.

Also they seems to be adding a couple of species to their list of sharks which they are planning to breed.
Gray Smooth hound (Mustelus californicus)
Zebra shark (Stegostoma fasciatum)
