As far as I'm aware you can't cut the tails and fins off until landed.

I tend to just cut head off and gut. Takes up less room in cooler and less waste to get rid of later

Keith gummies and schoolies can have the tail and head removed ( you must leave the last gill slot ) - that is the reason that the measurement is from the last gill slit to the tail -- removing the tail and head still leaves the carcass at full length so fisheries can measure the fish if they need to do so

-- i blead the fish by cutting there throat and gut on the water also

"Carcass (sharks including elephant fish): The body of a shark or elephant fish which is not cut or mutilated in any manner other than to remove the gut and head forward and clear of the rear-most gill slit." ........

I took that to mean fins and tail have to stay. But I agree with your point about it not being necessary for size, neither are the fins, so never really understood it.
