Documented declines of approximately 97% of ‘greeneye dogsharks’ between 1976-77 and 1996–97 between the Sydney area (central NSW) and the Eden-Gabo Island area (southern NSW/northern Victoria) were reported from a fishery independent survey (Graham et al. 2001). Total catches in the abovementioned areas at depths of 220 to 605 m declined from a mean of 44.8 kg/h in 1976/77 to a mean of 1.2 kg/h in 1996-97 (Graham et al. 2001). It is likely that Squalus chloroculus, S. montalbani and S. grahami were all caught during these surveys (K. Graham pers. comm. 2007). Squalus chloroculus was possibly the predominant species in the southern survey areas (Ulladulla and Eden-Gabo Island) (K. Graham pers. comm. 2007).
Since 2003, vessels are required to land both the livers and carcasses of all dogfishes to enable accurate landing information to be recorded.
Since 2007, SESS Fishery was closed below 700 m to prevent targeting of deepwater species (750 m in Great Australian Bight Fishery) (See: http://www.mffc.gov.au/releases/2007/07005a.html).
