"Shark handling for Anglers:
a practical guide"
Join us online on Thursday 6th May at 7 - 8.30pm, for the fourth in a series of 'Shark-themed' events planned by the Angling Trust in 2021 aimed at Recreational Sea Anglers (RSA's).
This is your chance to again hear from and engage with, Dr Simon Thomas, the Honorary Biologist with the Shark Angling Club of Great Britain (SACGB) and the Sport Fishing Club of the British Isles (SCBI). Both organisations have provided co-funding for scientific papers with the SACGB.​
Ahead of this event Simon says:
‘Following on from Dr Georgia Jones's talk on why the ecology and unique physiology of sharks makes them especially vulnerable to overexploitation, I want to explore the practicalities of angling for sharks and how we can ensure that as many of the fish we return can both survive and thrive.

The good news is that when the correct fishing and handling techniques are used, scientific evidence suggests that the survival of the sharks we release is extremely high.

Unfortunately, when either of these factors are sub-optimal, their survival can be severely impacted and although the fish may swim away strongly, they can die within a few days.

Based on the shark handling guides of the SACGB, the SCBI and my personal experience from releasing over 4,200 sharks, I hope to offer some best practice guidance. By following this guidance we can ensure that both the methods we use to catch sharks and how we handle sharks when we release them, can maximise the survival of the fish we catch and thus play our part to ensure the future of the sport.'
To book your FREE place, simply register here and you will be provided with the link to join the forum on the 6th May at 7pm. You can view the video from our third shark themed forum 'Role of sharks in ocean ecosystems' on our website here.
