Shark ADVICE for Point Samson in the City of KarrathaCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Update on 14 September at 5:00pm
Fisheries Officers from Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development have inspected the whale carcass at Point Samson today and have observed the carcass has suffered heavy predation from sharks.
The parts of the carcass that were below the waterline are mostly gone, however some parts of the whale remain on the shore.
It is possible the residues of the whale may continue to act as a shark attractant and the beach is to remain closed until further notice.
Beach access is permitted within the closure area, but swimming or entering the water is prohibited.
If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600.
