Sharks and swimmers
Anne Rice (No to shark deterrents, Letters, 14/11) is in over her head. Sea swimming is, if you leave out parking fees, practically the last free pastime left to people of all ages. It is a healthy bit of exercise requiring little or no equipment.
Surely, giving our fishermen the right to take limited shark numbers on a trial basis is no big deal. The arrangement can be adjusted or stopped should the shark population become endangered.
Can we hear from someone in the fishing industry please, who knows more about the matter than we mere letter writers? Cecil Cahill, South Perth
