VLADIVOSTOK, July 11 (Itar-Tass) - Beaches and popular resort areas along the Pacific coast of Russia’s Far Eastern Primorsky Territory will be protected by anti-shark nets. The local authorities have supplemented the list of obligatory beach equipment with such devices.
As many as 20 beaches have already been netted in the Ussuri Bay and the Nakhodka Bay. These nets will be serviced by rescuers from the emergencies agencies and specialists of the consumer rights protection authorities, the press service of the Nakhodka administration told Itar-Tass.
First reports of shark attacks came from the Primorsky Territory in 2011. Three persons were reported to be attacked by shark. All the cases were registered in August, when the swimming season was in full swing. Subsequent hunting campaign was to no avail.
In 2012, no shark attacks were reported. Moreover, no sharks were seen in the Peter the Great Gulf. Experts attributed it to colder weather and hence colder water.
In 2012, beaches in the Primorsky Territory were protected by anti-shark nets.
