2007 Shark sightings

The sightings listed here are compiled from third parties. They are seldom verified or confirmed and PIRSA Fisheries take no responsibility for the accuracy of the information and do not guarantee that the information on this website represents all known shark sightings.

The shark sightings recorded on this site do not necessarily indicate the presence or absence of sharks in any particular area. Remember that sharks are mobile creatures; hence a shark sighting provided may not be specifically accurate, valid or useful.

Care should be taken when interpreting any information on the shark sighting log. Many of the sightings have not been verified and in some instances there may be multiple sightings of the same shark listed.

Some sightings are reported several hours, and in some cases days, after the actual observation. Although these sightings are listed, the usefulness of this information should be considered in this context.

PIRSA excludes all liability to any person arising directly or indirectly from using this site and any information or material available on the site.
