​Satellite-linked shark detection receivers are part of a comprehensive shark mitigation strategy

Esperance community to have their say on shark detection receivers

The Esperance community has been invited to go online and have their say about where two satellite-linked shark detection receivers should be deployed in the area.

A shortlist of locations is now available online for the community to provide feedback on until 14 June 2017.

The State Government announced last month it would extend Western Australia’s shark monitoring network to Esperance by deploying two satellite-linked receivers, as part of a comprehensive shark mitigation strategy.

These receivers will allow authorities to detect tagged sharks in the area and, in real-time, upload information regarding them to the SharkSmart activity map and the Surf Life Saving WA Twitter feed.
