More than 70 great white sharks have been tagged by scientists near Perth’s beaches in Australia. The sharks will be monitored as to when, where and for how long they linger close to this long stretch of coast.
According to press, this is the first time in the world that great white sharks will be monitored over the summer when they move to within 500m of metropolitan beaches from Ocean Reef to Garden and Rottnest Islands where satellite receivers are installed. Surf-life saving groups, scientists and wildlife officials will be notified immediately a tagged shark moves near any one of 18 bright-yellow acoustic seabed devices.
