Should shark nets be removed to stop this?

THE location of a dead Great Hammerhead shark in nets off a Gold Coast beach has prompted calls for the Queensland Government to remove the devices.

Activist group Sea Shepherd says the endangered shark was located on Monday in a net off Tallebudgera Beach by the crew of the Apex Harmony boat.

Sea Shepherd Australian spokesman Jonathan Clark says the death means it is time for Queensland to abandon nets for 'effective non-lethal shark monitoring, control and incident prevention measures'.
