Fifteen dead sharks have been discovered lined up on a rock wall on the NSW Far North Coast.
An investigation is underway after the upsetting scene was discovered by a resident walking near Fingal Head on Friday.
Photos posted to social media showed what appeared to be sliteye sharks lined up and mutilated.
According to Yahoo7, the bag limit for sharks such as these is five per fisherman.
Anyone who is found to have breached this limit is liable for a $88,000 fine and potentially 18 months in jail.
It is understood that the NSW Department of Primary Industries will investigate if there was any illegal activity.
