  • Taking Sharks In Seward

    FYI - from AF&G website

    Sharks are occasionally taken in Resurrection Bay fisheries. The daily bag limit for sharks is one fish of any species, and the annual limit is two sharks of any species. This includes spiny dogfish as well as salmon and sleeper sharks. Sleeper sharks are generally considered inedible and should be released. All harvested sharks must be recorded immediately upon capture on the back of your license or on your Harvest Record Card.
    Salmon sharks have a high urea content, and are inedible unless handled properly. Bleed your shark immediately upon capture by cutting the underside of the tail, and let the bleeding continue until the heart stops. Gutting the fish with a single cut from the anus to the gills can enhance the quality of the meat.
    How stupid is it to be wasting tons of salmon and halibut as bycatch in the Bering Sea and then have the coastal villages hollaring they have no food? It's got to stop!

    Ya, that is the same as last year. Gotta be careful with the business end though. Even after it is dead, the nerves will still make the mouth clamp on whatever is around. The meat is like mako shark and is a lot like swordfish in my opinion. However, ya don't need a lot of them. One shark will last a while, but is a good rotation between the halibut, lingcod, salmon and rockfish.
