No sharks are caught to provide livers for sea birding. The liver is from sharks caught for human consumption and from sharks caught on drum lines and shark nets fixed to protect recreational swimmers. The impact of shark nets on whales, dolphins, turtles and other marine life is not considered to be significant enough by the people who make the decisions to justify the use of alternative methods.
