Fisheries continues investigation following Falcon shark incidentCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Department of Fisheries’ shark scientists have examined two pieces of a surfboard recovered by WA Police following a serious shark incident at Falcon on Tuesday.
The scientists have confirmed that the damage to the board was as a result of a bite from a white shark, however there is insufficient evidence to determine the size of the shark responsible.
No biological material or tooth fragments were detected during the scientists’ inspection of the surfboard pieces.
Should any further parts of the board be recovered, the Department of Fisheries may be able to provide a further assessment.
