THE Town of Cottesloe will investigate installing a shark barrier at Cottesloe Beach.
‘ I do not understand why this is not the product of choice. It is a true continuous barrier, it enhances the marine eco system considerably (like an artificial reef does,) negates the need to bru- talise , traumatize or, even worse, kill sharks with giant hooks or blast holes in their heads with smokies if they are over 3 metres. There is absolutely no doubt the drum lines by virtue of their baiting process actually attract sharks within striking distance of swimmers as well. They are NOT a barrier. So, we have a product that is cheaper and safer for both humans and sharks.

‘ Craig Moss’s Eco Barrier was a great addition to Coogee beach this past summer. Premier Barnett would have to be a fool not to implement these barriers at Perth and WA beaches. They are way more cost efficient than those barbaric baited drum lines, which only succeed in killing and putting swimmers at more risk of an encounter with a shark. No sharks entered the swimmers' area, no by-catch was harmed and small fish thrived inside the barrier

‘ Maybe the council needs to take a trip to other states or to Europe to see that the rest of the world copes with alfresco pavement eating.
