- Liberal National Government has invested more than $33 million on shark hazard mitigation
Beachgoers in Perth's northern suburbs now have access to a protected swimming area after Premier Colin Barnett today officially opened the new Sorrento Beach enclosure.
"Beach enclosures are an important component of the Liberal National Government's shark hazard mitigation strategy and are proving to be incredibly popular with swimmers and families," Mr Barnett said.
"The Government has invested more than $33 million on shark hazard mitigation measures including research, public education, shark tagging, aerial patrols and a trial of drones.
"No single measure alone will protect water users from shark interactions, but a complementary suite of measures will reduce the risk."
