Carcass sparks whale warning
A shark warning was issued last week after a whale carcass was reported off Garden Island on Thursday.
The 5m short fin pilot whale carcass had been beached on the north of the island, near Herring Bay.
The whale was reported to authorities by a member of the public about 12.30pm. Officers from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions removed the whale carcass on Friday.
However, water users have been advised to remain cautious in this area because of the potential residues that may continue to attract sharks.
