PROJECT SUMMARY: The key objective of the NSW Shark Management Strategy is to increase protection for bathers from shark interactions while minimising harm to sharks or other animals.

This is a scientifically driven, integrated strategy involving several innovative approaches to provide the most effective shark attack mitigation measures at NSW beaches. Scout Aerial was engaged by the Department of Primary Industries to provide aerial surveillance and monitoring for the shark management program in NSW.

Phase 3 of the drone trials is currently underway at Ballina, Lennox Head, Evans Head, Redhead and Kiama. The drones fly a 4km circuit over the ocean at a height of 60 metres and speed of 40km per hour, with an on-board camera providing real-time vision of coastal waters.
