The two Sunshine Coast rivers high-risk for shark attacks

TWO Sunshine Coast rivers have been identified as "high-risk" locations for shark attacks by Surf Life Saving Queensland.

The group has called for shark drumlines to be places at the mouths of the Mooloolah and Paynter rivers.

The call was made by Surf Life Saving Queensland chief operating officer George Hill at a Senate inquiry into shark mitigation and deterrents.

Mr Hill said sharks were known to frequent the Mooloolah and Paynter rivers and that shark buoys would make conditions as safe as possible for swimmers.

"We just want to take that extra precaution," he said.

"The bull shark numbers are fairly high in Queensland and they are known to frequent river mouths, especially around dusk and early morning."
