  • Spiney dogfish?

    What is the bag limit in North gulf coast waters, and do you have to mark it on your liscense?

  • #2
    My read is they fall in the "other finfish" catagory so no limit

    but why would you want to keep them?

      I believe they fall under the shark category-limit 2 per year. Agree though, why would you want to keep them?

              Just got off the phone with ADF&g in Anchorage. They said they fall under the shark 1 per day, one in possesion. However, they are not sharks when it comes to 2 per year, and you do not have to annotate your liscense.
              Thanks for the replies.

                Curiosity is getting the best of me. Why would you want to keep these? From what I understand they aren't something you would try for or have a desire to keep.

                  If you go to Britain and order fish & chips, you're eating spiny dogfish.
                  Your bait stinks and your boat is ugly

                    Are you sure?

                    The following is from Ask.com.

                    Fish and Chips
                    Deep-fried fish in a crispy batter with fat golden chips is still one of Britain and Ireland's favorite meals. The love for them ranks alongside Roast Beef and Yorkshire Puddings, and the recently nominated Chicken Tikka Masala, as the English National Dish.

                    Which Fish?
                    The UKís favorite fish is still Cod and accounts for 61.5% of total consumption. Although the North Sea cod stocks issue is a serious problem, Cod landed in the UK is caught within strict management regimes and quota systems setting safe limits for catches agreed by fishermen, scientists and government. Cod caught within these agreed limits is safe for consumers to eat.

                    Haddock at 25% is the second favorite and regional variations include whiting in Northern Ireland and some parts of Scotland, skate and huss in the south of England.


                    I see cod and haddock making up 86.5% of the fish and chips in England. And since I read it on the interweb, it must be true!

                      I have no interest in fishing for these. A friend of mine, who has a boat, asked me the question. I didn't have the answer, so I asked here.
                      Thanks again.

                        saw someone trying to filet one at the docks a few years ago and they were ending up with a grey white mush .... cant be all that great ... one other point, like all sharks they have no kidney, therfore urea / amoina leaves the body by the skin and there is a lot of it in the flesh.

                        not for me ...

                          I found a book in my grandfathers closet years ago that was all about preparing spiny dogfish. It was from Britain. There was a certain way to filet them that involved a 2x4 with a nail sticking out of it, where you would impale the head. The trick with any shark is to clean it VERY quickly. Filet it and skin it within a few minutes of catching and place the meat in a bucket of water. For every gal of water put 1/2 a cup of lemon juice, this will help soak out any urea that came in contact with the meat. They are good eating. not as good a fresh salmon shark but still. good. As for the guy that was cleaning one at the dock, I have see guys cleaning salmon at the dock that I wouldn't feed my cat.

                            google "spiny dog fish fish and chips" and you will get all sorts of information on the English using spiny dog fish for fish and chips.

                              Well, I'll be! Seems it's true. I also found an article from March 2010 saying it would no longer be allowed because "spiny dogfish are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as Endangered in the Northwest Atlantic and globally as Vulnerable".

                              So, maybe we're both right?
