Fisherman injured in nightmare shark attack

A man’s been attacked by a shark in waters off the Western Australian North West Cape tourist town of Exmouth.

It happened about 2pm Friday when the victim was spear fishing in waters off Peak Island, about 50km from Exmouth.

A spearfisher suffered minor injuries after being attacked by a lemon shark off Peak Island, near Exmouth, about 2pm Friday.

It’s understood he had a run-in with a lemon shark, during which he suffered minor injuries.

A WA Country Health Service said the man was taken for treatment at Exmouth Hospital, where he’s in a stable condition.
The attack prompted the state’s Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) to issue a shark alert warning for the Peak Island area.

Those in the area are advised to adhere to beach closures.

Anyone who spots a shark in WA is urged to report it to Water Police on 9442 8600.

All shark sighting information reported to Water Police is provided to land managers and relevant authorities and to the public on the SharkSmart website, SharkSmart WA app and Surf Life Saving WA Twitter feed.

The attack comes in the same week Tod Gendle, 55, was taken by a great white while surfing off Streaky Bay in South Australia.
