Sea Fishing - Sharkatag 2012
This year Sharkatag takes place on 14-16 June from marks around the Solway and SW Scotland.
Sharkatag, organised by the Scottish Shark Tagging Programme (SSTP), is not a competition its main aims are to highlight the urgent need for shark and ray conservation in Scottish waters and to raise the public awareness of sea angling. As always, the focus is on collecting data on tope, smoothound, thornback and any other shark or ray species.
The SSTP is part of the Scottish Sea Angling Conservation Network (SSACN) and they work in partnership with government agencies, conservation NGOs and academic institutions to provide a focal point for shark research in Scotland.
