Shark danger closes Durban beaches

Damaged shark nets pose risk to ocean users

SOUTH AFRICA: Reacting to advice from the Natal Sharks Board, the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality has closed all of Durban’s beaches following heavy rains which have caused damage to shark nets along the coast.

“All water activities are prohibited. However, residents can still enjoy other activities along the beach that do not require them to come into contact with sea water,” the municipality said in a statement adding that teams have been deployed to fix the nets and infrastructure.

Murky water which is full of logs and other unsafe objects, as a result of the heavy rains, has resulted in the shark nets at most beaches breaking - making beaches unsafe for the public to use. The beaches will remain closed until further notice.
