Shark Hub UK

Shark Hub UK is a new and exciting collaborative partnership between the Angling Trust, Shark Angling Club of Great Britain (SACBG), Sportfishing Club of the British Isles (SCBI) and researchers from Bournemouth University, University of York and Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

Through Shark Hub UK the team hope to support and engage with the wider recreational angling community to improve access to resources like best-practice guidelines, increase participation in the sport, particularly with those from vulnerable and disadvantaged communities, and to widen educational outreach on UK sharks.

As more apex predators arrive off our shores this is an incredibly exciting time for shark research in the UK. The coalition will advocate for the valuable role that recreational anglers can play in broadening our scientific understanding of shark species around the UK and informing shark management both nationally and internationally.
