Update on 17 October at 4.20pm
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has extended the Regulation 44 closure for the area extending 2 kilometres north and 2 kilometres south of a humpback whale carcass ashore on rocks at Wyadup, Canal Rocks.
This area covers the locations between the southern end of Smiths Beach to the north, and the southern end of Injidup Beach to the south, due to the slowly decomposing whale carcass that remains in this area
The closure will remain in force at least until 6pm on Thursday 25 October 2018, when a further review will be conducted.
The decomposing whale carcass may continue to act as an attractant to sharks.
The closure is in place from the shoreline to two kilometres 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.
If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600
