Maps of beaches with shark control equipment

Shark nets and drumlines are used at Queensland beaches to catch sharks passing through an area. The maps below show the locations of nets and drumlines across the Queensland coastline.

The Fisheries Act 1994 establishes an exclusion zone of 20 metres around shark control equipment. It is an offence for a person to be in the shark control equipment exclusion zone unless authorised and penalties may apply. The offence does not apply to boats transiting directly through the exclusion zone without stopping.
