Beach to remain closed at DawesvilleCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Pyramid Beach at Dawesville, where a young surfer was bitten on the foot yesterday, will remain closed for today.
The Department of Fisheries is this morning investigating the incident and trying to ascertain if the species of the shark can be determined.
The man received shark bite injuries to his foot after being bitten late yesterday afternoon and was later treated in hospital.
The department has determined the setting of capture gear is not required, taking into account the fact the beach is closed, there have been no shark sightings in the vicinity since late yesterday afternoon and a patrol boat has been monitoring the area since daylight today.
There are no people in the water at Pyramid Beach given the area remains closed today.
