WA’s beach lines electronic shark linesOn Wednesday July 4th, the Australian federal government committed to put in 176 electronic drum lines along 260kms of shoreline where Western Australia’s most famous beaches are located.

The proposal was made in reaction to the concerns related to the shark attacks. Beachgoers and travel operators in the state have been terrified in terms of the fear over recent years, with a wave of deadly shark attacks decreasing tourism numbers and bringing fear to the tight-knit coastal communities.

The installation cost is calculated to be approximately A$7 million (S$7.07 million).”Deployed from Quinns Rock Beach to Mandurah in the metropolitan area and from Bunbury to Prevelly in the southwest, the SMART drumlines would cover those areas where there has been 11 out of 17 fatal shark attacks in the last 25 years,” said Australian Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg.

“Given the high incidence of shark attacks in WA and the recent release of a CSIRO report into great white shark numbers off the west coast of Australia, now is an opportune time for the Western Australian government to take further steps to protect is citizens from shark attacks.”

In this year April, organizers were compelled to cancel the profitable and world-renowned Margaret River Surf Pro event after two people in separate incidences were damaged by sharks at close by beaches. With pressure rising on authorities to take stern actions into the problem without causing needless harm to the marine life, the state of the art SMART drumlines offer a technology-based approach to managing the ocean’s greatest predator.
