Fancy a bite? Shark and chips is back on the menu after spurdog fishing ban ends
- Fisherman were originally banned from catching the little sharks back in 2010
Shark and chips is back on the menu at takeaways as the price of cod has hit an all-time high.
The Government is allowing British fishermen to restart catching Northeast Atlantic spurdog, a 40-inch long shark species, after a 13-year ban.
The move may see the reintroduction of ‘rock salmon’ or ‘dogfish’ on chip shop menus – as these names are thought more appealing than the word ‘shark’.

A ban on catching the little shark was introduced in 2010, when it was considered endangered. But its stocks have now improved.
Since 2021, the price of cod fillets has risen from £9 per kilogram to £12, reports the National Federation of Fish Friers.
Its president Andrew Cook said the Government’s decision on catching spurdog was ‘good news for British fishermen and for our fish and chip shops’.
