Abstract:Whale sharks were banned to be caught in Taiwan since 2008 then the public descended their concern on the whale shark gradually. However, international bodies and groups are still caring more about this species. Whale sharks are still caught incidentally by set nets in Taiwan. And set nets fishermen are asked to release these incidental catch of whale sharks. In the process of release, the whale shark sometimes got hurt even died. The objectives of this study are (1) to understand structure of set nets set in hot area where whale sharks were caught around Taiwan including off-shore islands; and (2) to realize in situ the process of the whale shark release. Last, (3) provide suggestions to how fishermen release a whale shark while it is caught by the set net, and hope the incidental catch of the whale shark can be released harmless and friendly.
