There are many different shark species and an abundance of them in the New England Coastal waters from mid July through late October. Some sharks – the Mako, and Thresher – make for wonderful culinary treats. Porbeagles, also known as the ‘Mackeral’ shark also add to the mix and is a cousin to the Mako. This too can make for a tasteful treat! Other sharks are best for a catch and release program.
