Default great white shark caught by net in croatia in the

sad story,a tuna purseiner boat caught a 2000 kg great white 20 feet long in the adriatic on the 17 july near the island off jabuka.The
comercial fisherman killed this very rare fish took the jaws out, cut the fish in pieces and dumped it in the sea. I hope to get a picture in the next days.

Default RE: here they would get ....

Amazing the local press (Slobodna Dalmacija, Vjesnik, Vecernji List, etc.) is totally silent. I'd bet they don't want to scare off tourists with monster shark pictures in mid-season.
Taksan, I think the laws are just as tough over there. My guess is (based on no details wrt to this case, just time spent on those purse seiners) this was an 'unavoidable' bycatch.

Never judge the success or failure of your fishing in seconds, minutes, hours, days or even years - but rather by a lifetime of experiences.
