Study of shark migration in Whitsundays, instead of drum strains


A $ 250,000 study will be conducted to uncover shark migration patterns around Queensland, hoping to prevent new attacks.

Three people were attacked by sharks in Cid Harbor during the winter months in the last two months.

This includes the Victorian doctor Daniel Christidis, who died months after being knocked down during a yachting vacation.

Today, a trusted brain of 22 ministers, scientists, tour operators and members of local governments gathered in the Whitsundays to discuss solutions to the emergence of shark attacks.

But they officially excluded the drums, despite the visitors' requirements.

"I had a family who came to me the next day and told me that if the drum lines are not introduced, they do not come here on a family holiday," said local member Jason Costigan.

The government of Queensland has excluded drum lines because it could give swimmers a false sense of security.
