Seaquester did not weigh in!

Seaquester did not weigh in....

Here's the ruling on the Mako that was just weighed in by Seaquester. There were two officers here, one from NOAA who is a Federal Officer and a Conservation Police Officer from State of NJ. Their decision and ruling is that the Mako weighed in by Seaquester was officially undersized at 79" fork length. Seaquester left the weigh station and did not weigh in.

Statistics and Research

Captains and Crew Members,

Although it its not mandatory, we have suggested that you please let us know if you have caught and released and species of shark so we can provide the info to NOAA for their research and statistics. You can either submit the info to us and we'll keep track of it or you can even enter the info yourself the moment you release your catch by going into the Mako Fever app and managing your boat info.

Thanks for your cooperation.
