Subject: Shark Regulations Reminder
Please be aware that fishing for sharks is regulated by the State and federal regulations. Federal regulations prohibit targeting any prohibited species and anglers must release any prohibited shark immediately, without removing it from the water and in a manner that maximizes its chances of survival. For example, Sand Tiger Sharks are a prohibited species, therefore posing for pictures on the beach with this species or any other species on the prohibited list is a violation of federal regulations. Additional information on the regulations regarding these species can be found at www.fisheries.noaa.gov/topic/atlantic-highly-migratory-species.
Read it Jack. You can take picture as long as it is in the water. It just says it can not be beached to take a picture. Just like a Tarpon and Goliath Grouper. Can not be taken out of the water but can still fish for them.
