dabomb4810, if you care to participate in the program, send a letter to the N.M.F.S. requesting that you would like to. Send to:

APEX Predators Program
National marine Fishries Service
28 Tarzwell Drive
Narragansett, RI 02882-1199

If you send them a letter, they will in turn send you some forms to fill out, when you return those, they will send you a tagging kit which includes 5 tags, cards, shark identification manuel, general information, etc. They only ask that you are serious and will use them.

You can get additional information by visiting It looks like you will need a permit to fish sharks this year. I believe this same permit will cover sharks and tunas.

It is a good program that goes a long way to help understand these beautiful creatures, and it is a lot of fun as well.
