David Gilet, Byron Bay
During a previous discussion of the shark situation I suggested that a series of radar equipped buoys be distributed along the coastline.
The radar could be connected to a computer species recognition program not a difficult ask as cetaceans undulate in the water, while sharks glide and other identification factors could also be included.
The system could then be connected to an automatic alarm system. The advantage to such a system is that it would operate 24 hours, and I would think in most weather conditions. Drones are only effective when they’re in the air and are sometimes ineffective in certain weather conditions.
