Notable Fish

The SACGB has maintained a record of sharks with an estimated weight of 100lbs or more for many years.

Typically, these are reported to the club by members, although you don’t however have to be a club member to be included in the list.

The primary purpose of the list is to monitor the number of larger sharks in UK waters to enable annual comparisons to be made, but we are also interested in notable sharks caught and released outside UK waters.

To report a notable shark, you should send the following information to the secretary:

  1. Your name and contact details
  2. Species
  3. Name of Port
  4. Name of Boat
  5. Date of catch and release
  6. Name of Skipper
  7. Length from tip of nose to fork of tail
  8. Girth measurement taken to the front of the dorsal fin

If you can, include a clean photograph of the shark, preferably taken in landscape mode.

If the fish is not brought aboard its weight can be estimated but we need good quality photographic or video evidence with an object of known size in the picture to provide a means of scaling the shark

There is a SACGB trophy awarded each year to the member who catches and releases the most sharks of 100lbs or more in any season
