Media Response - Cid Harbour update

News release | 24-Sep-2018

Another large Tiger shark was caught on a drumline in Cid Harbour today as well as a smaller black tip shark.

The Tiger shark measured 3.7 metres and the other shark was 1.2 metres.

As per the Fisheries Queensland protocol, the sharks were humanely euthanised, measured and taken out to sea for disposal.

Six sharks have been removed from the Cid Harbour area since three drumlines were temporarily deployed last Friday.

The message is these waters are not safe for swimming.

During this holiday period, we urge people to exercise caution, stay out of the water and not throw foodscraps overboard from boats.
