No answers to shark attacks

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 16 July, 2012 - 7:30 AM
Surfer Ben Linden was fatally mauled by a suspected white pointer shark at Wedge Island.

Fisheries minister Norman Moore has admitted he has no answers on how to protect ocean users from shark attacks following the death of surfer Ben Linden. Steve Mills spoke to Mr Moore after Mr Linden became the 5th shark attack death in 10 months in WA.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Just because Mr Moore or his department have no answers, does not mean there aren't any. The number of fatal attacks increasing does not need an answer. The identification of type of shark responsible needs no answer. The "why" question needs an answer. "Why" cannot be a question if joined to guesses of "increased whale numbers" or "more people in the ocean". "Why" has to be taken as a open question about an animal species, which by nature is a natural hunter, being drawn to hunt its prey along our shoreline. Great Whites have not appeared in our oceans, or on our doorstep, in the last 5 years, but of recent times they have begun to attack humans. Strangely this has happened around other parts of the world at the same time. What has changed the hunting patterns and needs of these animals? Hunters need signals to be successful. Are we humans sending the signals, or is it something else? That is the question.
