SHARK FISHING-AN AUSTRALIAN INDUSTRY 385 AWAITING THE SKINNER'S KNIFE This haul weighed more than three tons, but its value was lessened because it did not contain any carpet or wobbegong sharks. Because of their fancy patterns the skins of these species are much prized by users of sharkskin leather (see, also, text, pages 369, 376). Photographs by Norman W. Caldwell ALL CLEAR, SKIPPER! The catch cleared and stowed in the hold, the net is stacked forward ready for relaying. Ground anchors and marking drums can be seen.
