A four metre shark has been sighted in the Mandurah Estuary near Stingray Point.
The shark was sighted 100 metres offshore, half way across the channel towards King Carnival.
The shark sighting was reported to authorities about 1pm on Friday.
Update: Previous advice of a 4.0mt shark sighted at 1300hrs, 12/01 in Peel Inlet, Mandurah is incorrect. The correct location was Stingray Point, Mandurah.— Surf Life Saving WA (@SLSWA) January 12, 2018
Initially the shark was reported in the Peel Inlet, but Surf Life Saving WA confirmed that location was incorrect about half an hour later.
