Shark Control Program

The Shark Control Program (SCP) relies on nets or drumlines, or a combination of both, to minimise the threat of shark attack on humans in particular locations.

The SCP is now managed by Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ), part of the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Learn more about the SCP by viewing the Shark Control Program video.
