Guide to safe Shark, Ray and Skate Handling

We are blessed with a high diversity of Elasmobranchs in South Africa and some first-class fishing spots. Whether you actively target sharks, rays or skates for catch-and-release angling or only encounter them occasionally on a fishing trip, it is important to know how to handle them. That way you can reduce the chance of post-release mortality significantly and help our shark populations to stay healthy.

We have compiled a guide that explains how to minimize your impacts while fishing by helping you to choose the right gear, handle the animals correctly and contribute to science. Click here to get to the guide.
