Do not take in shark refuge areas.
The dorsal and pectoral fins must remain attached to all shark until they are landed.
They live in the deep channels of bays, or in the shallower waters of the continental shelf and estuaries. Found in cooler temperate waters off Tasmania from inshore to 140 metres deep.
Broadnose sharks are most commonly hooked on longlines and droplines. As a major predator of shark species, you may hook a broadnose which has been scavenging on other sharks hooked on that same longline.
Like any large shark, this species is potentially dangerous and should be handled with care.
The flesh is good eating.
