2023 年，澳洲昆士蘭海岸有 700 多隻海洋動物被防鯊網及鼓線陷阱殺死。這些陷阱的目的是捕捉或殺死大白鯊和虎鯊。然而，有600多隻非目標物種，包括座頭鯨、儒艮、海龜及海豚等被捕獲，當中400多隻死亡。 專家表示，沒有明確的科學證據證明這些防鯊網及鼓線陷阱可以減少鯊魚攻擊。
In 2023, over 700 marine animals were killed by shark nets and drum lines in Queensland’s coast. These nets and drum lines were targeted to catch or kill great white sharks and tiger sharks. However, more than 600 non-target animals were caught including humpback whales, dugongs, sea turtles and dolphins, and over 400 were dead. Experts said there is no clear scientific evidence support these nets and drum lines can reduce shark attacks.
