Recreational fishing for mako sharks to be allowed again
Recreational fishing for mako sharks is to be allowed again, after draft laws were passed by parliament recently. Short and longfin makos and porbeagle sharks became off limits from January 29 due to a listing on an international convention to protect migratory animals. Labor's legislation now overturns the ban on the recreational fishing for these sharks in commonwealth waters.
