Atlantic Shark Identification Workshops
NOAA Fisheries requires certain highly migratory species permit holders to attend educational workshops. Federal shark dealer permit holders are required to attend Atlantic shark identification workshops.
All federally-permitted shark dealers are required to attend an Atlantic shark identification workshop.
The objective of these workshops is to reduce the number of unknown and improperly identified sharks reported in the dealer reporting form and to increase the accuracy of species-specific dealer reported information, quota monitoring, and the data used in stock assessments. These workshops train shark dealer permit holders, or their proxies, to properly identify Atlantic shark carcasses.
