A: Yes, provided that the information you supply can be verified by SACGB records. Please email secretary with known details

Q: What determines a shark as a qualifier?
A: We no longer weigh sharks to confirm full membership. if it is a blue Shark, provided the length from the tip of the nose to the fork of the tail is a minimum of 70” it is a qualifier. The equivalent length for Porbeagle is 55″, for Thresher is 48″ and for Mako it is 58″.

Q: What is the British Measured & Released Record?
A: This listing replaces the British Record listing where fish must be weighed and very probably killed to do so. These records are awarded on the combined girth and nose to fork of tail dimensions, eg a 106” nose to fork of tail and a girth of 44” is a shark with a points score of 150 in Measured & Released terms
