Update on 17 November at 09:15am
Rottnest Island Rangers have reopened Thomson Bay, Pinky Beach, The Basin and Longreach Bay, following the relocation of the whale carcass yesterday afternoon.
Fisheries Officers from the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) continue to monitor the movement and drift direction of the carcass using the attached tracking device.
Additional caution is recommended by DPIRD in the Rottnest Island area, as any residue from the whale carcass may still attract sharks to the area.
Switch on your Sea Sense and stay informed of shark activity information by checking the SharkSmart website, download the SharkSmart WA app or follow Surf Life Saving WA Twitter.
If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600
