Shovel nose sharks

Recommended Posts

In NSW can I keep a shovelnose shark to eat or as bait? Is there a legal length?

Cheers - Pugz

Best to check the nsw dpi size & bag limit guide whick you can just google

Well that's annoying!

There actually part of the ray family(Rajiformes)

https://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/631384/Identifying-sharks-and-rays.pdf

Personally I'd be sending the DPI an email to as you would want to be sure.

Better to err on the side of cations as you don't want to be pulled up at the ramp & stung with a $500 fine!!

Looks like it's OK. in the first PDF second page it takes about commercial catches and they're taken in significant numbers be rec fishos. But you're probably right I would check with DPI

Listen to this man. Pretty plain and simple. 5 bag limit of shark and rays. Shovel nose rays/sharks are mentioned in the bag limit section.

Some of you may be reading far too much into the research programs links.

They are fine to take. And as mentioned it is a bag limit of 5. 

I have eaten them in the past and they are not too bad but the larger ones have a slight chlorine taste! 

Cheers scratchie!!!

Bleed them out , skin and they are good, most sharks get that "ammonia" taste if they are left too long with the guts in.
