The State of Western Australia (Department of the Premier and Cabinet) is proposing to set up to 60 static baited drum lines. These will be deployed approximately 1km offshore from selected high use swimming beaches and surf breaks within designated Marine Monitored Areas in the metropolitan and south west coastal regions of Western Australia. The static drum lines are to be deployed between 15 November and 30 April for a period of three years, commencing in 2014.
Twelve drum lines will be kept in reserve for temporary deployment in response to a shark threat or incident anywhere in Western Australian waters at any time throughout the year.
Public submissions close on Monday 7 July 2014.
