The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Service Corrected 2016 Commercial Shark Size Limits

The Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), pursuant to Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) 08.02.22.04B, in order to comply with species management through the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Coastal Sharks, announces a new catch limit for large coastal sharks. Effective at 12:01 a.m. April 10, 2016, the catch limit is 3 large coastal sharks per vessel per trip. Large coastal sharks includes all of the sharks in the aggregated large coastal and hammerhead management groups defined in COMAR 08.02.22.03A(6) and (7). The species in the two management groups include: Silky; Tiger; Blacktip; Spinner; Bull; Lemon; Nurse; Scalloped hammerhead; Great hammerhead; and Smooth hammerhead.

The National Marine Fisheries Service anticipates in-season trip limit modifications based on harvest. If modifications are made, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Service will follow with modifications for state waters. A new public notice will be issued if modifications are made.
