Ban on QLD shark cull

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal has ordered that the department could no longer shoot dead 19 shark species in protected areas between central and north Queensland. Tribunal deputy president Ian Hanger and senior member Adria Poljak, declared that any sharks captured alive must be released, killing the shark was only allowed on "welfare grounds" It was also ruled that the 173 drum lines inside the reef marine park must be checked more frequently and that tiger, bull and white sharks must be tagged and relocated. State Agriculture Minister Mark Furner has told Parliament that the Government would appeal against the ruling.
