Shark ADVICE for Canal Rocks near YallingupCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Update on 10 January at 10.00am
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has extended the Regulation 44 closure for this area, due to the slowly decomposing whale carcass that remains in this location.
This area covers the locations between the unnamed headland at the western end of Canal Rocks (33° 40.021’S and 114° 59.6’E) to the south (past Wyadup Rocks) to a point on the beach north of Mitchell Rocks (33° 41.342’S and 114° 59.581’E).
The decomposing whale carcass may continue to act as an attractant to sharks.
Beach closure signs remain in place.
The closure includes the area from the shoreline to one kilometre out to sea. This means beaches and waters in this area cannot be used by divers, surfers and swimmers. This closure does not apply to vessels.
The closure will remain in force at least until 6pm on Thursday 17 January 2019, when a further review will be conducted.
