Keep clear of new shark buoys

BOATERS are advised to keep clear of new customised yellow buoys that have been deployed as part of the NSW Government Shark Management Strategy along the NSW north coast.

The Department of Primary Industries has deployed eight new customised 'listening station buoys' which are around 3.5 metres long and fitted with 3.5 metre long steel sub-frames. The buoys have been deployed at a depth of 10 to 12 metres.

Of Yamba Main Beach, the buoy is located at 29° 26.000'S, 153° 22.191E.

Vessel operators have been advised to exercise caution when navigating near the buoys which are marked by a yellow flashing light with a range of two nautical miles and a flash rate of one second on, four seconds off.
