From DPI Fisheries – Regarding Drones detect sharks at Redhead Dec/Jan 2016-2017

Thanks for the comments on your shark encounter. We at Hover UAV were the drone operators conducting the shark surveillance. We spoke about your need for a siren on the drone for immediate alerting to water users at the time of your encounter. Since we have developed such a siren that will immediately alert water users of a hazardous shark.
You may also be interested in this video that shows your second encounter with a Bull shark shortly after the first.

The drone trial alerted me and others in the surf when sharks were about. I hope drone use is implemented into beach patrols as often and in as many places as possible – Crow

Redhead Beach 7th March 2017. A wild storm overnight heaved up the “pog” lying on the bottom of the ocean and whipped up a wild batch of horrible brown foam and dumped it on the beach. As Frank sang it … don’t you eat the yellow snow cause that’s were the husky’s go.
