Drum-line Trial Catches First Shark Off WA Coast
The WA government's controversial drum-line trial has just caught its first shark.
The 1.5m shark, reported to be a tiger shark, was caught at 9.08am north of Gracetown.
It’s since been released by authorities.
The 15-month trial’s intent is to tag and relocate sharks along 11.5km of coastline around the Gracetown area, from Hangman’s surf break to Ellensbrook in the south.
