    World-first-breeding at the Wilhelmshafen Aquarium : the 2013 first discribed Halmahera walking shark ( Hemiscyllium halmahera ) laid several eggs and the first of them hatched for 6 days ! Hopefully also the others will hatch and the species can find a wider distribution in European collections. At the moment the species is only kept at Wilhelmshafen and the Gdynia Aquarium in Poland.
