ENVOY {Shark Netting and Drum Lines in Qld}
« on: Sat 16 May 18:15 2020 »
Been a while for a post from me but this one is close to home and looking for peoples thoughts.
It has been on the news and in papers of late and a documentary is coming.
I know a lot of effort has gone into this and has already created a bit of a stir from one MP.
Your thoughts would be appreciated for or against as I can pass them on to those doing this doc.
Bruce.

Keep the shark nets and drum lines in place. I'm in the view of fisheries, human lives are more important. Too many extreme tree huggers and greenies behind this doco. That's my view and I don't sit on the fence.

    The nets are there to make people feel safer and feel like they are going into an enclosed area free of danger when going into the water. They donít go full length to the bottom or form any real sort of safe enclosure to swim in, and large sharks capable of doing serious damage to some one are seen cruising on the ďinsideĒ of the net near oblivious swimmers. I think they do more damage than good. And if you are scared to go swimming on a beach without nets then donít look at road toll figures or you wonít hop in a car again. Iím not a tree hugging hippie but I do accept that when I get into the water there is risk.
    Looking forward to the next trip
