Under a new $8 million strategy for shark management, drones will patrol 34 beaches across NSW. This will be in addition to the 35 SMART drumlines deployed along the north coast.

The new approach to shark management is based on five years of scientific research into shark behaviour and the most effective ways to protect beachgoers.

“While no government can ever fully reduce the risk of shark attacks at our beaches this new program is backed by world-leading research and will provide the best in modern protection methods to our coastal communities,” Mr Marshall said.
