Leaving dead dogfish all over the beach is pointless when they could be thrown back. Even if anyone tried to do their own population control and kill any dogfish they caught, the amount of impact would be so small and nothing close to what the trawlers and comercial fishing is doing to other species that are a lot less common. One load of elephant fish and rig that a small fishing boat would bring back would probably be more than anyone would catch on a rod and reel in a whole season.
