Western Australia’s Controversial Shark Cull Claims First Casualty

Western Australia’s Controversial Shark Cull Claims First Casualty

This actually makes me sick to my stomach!

Taken from the National Geographic website.

“A controversial shark cull claimed its first casualty this weekend in Western Australia, when a commercial fisherman shot and killed a tiger shark off of Old Dunsborough (map) in the southwest region of Western Australia.

In a move late last year that has since sparked protests, Western Australia premier Colin Bennettannounced a shark cull to control populations of great white sharks off of popular beaches in the region.

This was in response to the fatal attack on surfer Chris Boyd last November.

The cull—which will run from January to April of this year—includes deploying as many as 72 baited lines attached to drums and anchored to the seafloor to catch sharks over 9.8 feet (3 meters) long. Sharks smaller than 9.8 feet (3 meters) will be released.

SHARK ATTACK! What do you do when you are spearfishing and a shark comes around looking for dinner? WATCH this video and see how its done! I personally haven’t had an encounter with the taxman and I pray I never do…but we as spearo’s need to understand the risk involved in our passion AND big balls!
