Further to the announcement in May the club has received information which has given more clarity on the pregnant Porbeagle situation. We are now actively working toward the commencement of talks with those concerned with a view to identifying how the club and the sport can increase their contribution to the scientific knowledge and conservation of Porbeagle sharks.

The club have also taken the decision to introduce an immediate, and indefinite suspension period for all trophy and British Measured & Released Records claims for Porbeagle sharks.
