Record #:
In the 1920s and 1930s, Steve Roberts fished for sharks off Morehead City, North Carolina. Roberts and others in the shark fishery used 30 foot long boats and long nets with large mesh, and sharks would be brought up on hooks attached to the mast and boom. Sharks ranged from 65 to 850 pounds and up to 16 feet long. Fins, skins, and flesh were used for different purposes and sold in different places, even different countries.
