More grey nurse sharks confirmed

THERE are three times as many grey nurse sharks in our blue backyard than previously thought, according to new research.

ECOfishers chief executive officer, Ken Thurlow, said the latest published research concerning eastern grey nurse shark numbers is positive.

“The latest scientific census, a count of individuals irrefutably identified as different, shows a minimum of 927 individual sharks,” Mr Thurlow said.

“This latest research confirms ECOfishers stance on grey nurse shark numbers and belies the emotional nonsense of only 300 sharks left, heavily promoted by the Greens and the media.”

The research was conducted at 24 different sites in NSW alone, and while this research was undertaken by scientists to depths of 20m, Mr Thurlow said there may be many more sharks out there in deeper waters.
