Changes made to shark regulations effective August 2nd
Wednesday, July 3, 2013

Amendment 5a of the 2006 Consolidated Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan established a new minimum size limit for the large hammerhead shark species (great, smooth, and scalloped) of 78 inches (6.5 feet) fork length (FL), which becomes effective on August 2, 2013. The fork length measurement is the straight-line distance between the tip of the shark’s nose and the fork of the tail (Figure 3).

The size limit for other shark species and the retention limits remain the same.

Oceanic whitetip and hammerhead sharks cannot be possessed or landed by a vessel that also possesses or lands any tunas, billfish, or swordfish.
