This headless nurse shark was landed yesterday by local fishermen in Puerto Viejo de Limon, in accordance with the Costa Rican Fishing and Aquaculture (Incopesca) controls on shark fishing in national water, which requires every shark to be landed in one piece, except for the head and viscera, which are removed at sea for reasons of hygiene.
