Report special catches of sharks, skates and rays!



Through this page you can report your catches of sharks, skates and rays (see the capture report form below). Catch reports will be used for scientific research. Special catches (of marked fish) will be rewarded! For example, a capture report of a tagged Starry smooth-hound will be rewarded bij either (your choice) 25 euro’s or Sharkatag T-shirts for the entire crew.


To determine the sex of the shark or ray you take a look at its belly. A male has two finger-like ‘claspers’ between the pelvic fins. The claspers are absent on the females.
