A two-metre great white shark has been sighted 500m off Falcon Bay Beach on Friday morning, Surf Life Saving WA have confirmed.
Public report 2.0m white shark sighted 06:10hrs 07/12, Falcon Bay Beach, Mandurah 500m offshore , 32 34.865s 115 38.192e.— Surf Life Saving WA (@SLSWA) December 6, 2018
A public report was made at 6.10am this morning at the popular Mandurah coastal location.
The sighting follows on from two sharks being spotted on Wednesday morning off Avalon Beach.
Shark mitigation conversations have been vehemently debated of late following 20-year-old Albany bodyboarder Noah Symmans being bitten by a grey-nurse shark off Pyramids Beach on November 11.
The Mandurah Mail reported last month only 14 surfers in the Mandurah area have taken up the state government’s offer of subsidised personal shark deterrent devices.
