Sharks and swim­mers

The West Australian - - LETTERS -

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
