OPERATION CENTRE (EOC)

NSRI are appealing to bathers, paddlers and surf boarders to be cautious along the Southern Cape coastline, in particular around the coastline of Plettenberg Bay, due to a high number of reported White shark sightings.The increase of sharks at this time of the year is part of the normal aggregation of these animals that take advantage of natural prey like seals and fish close in shore.A large amount of shark sightings and some encounters have been reported close in shore along the Plettenberg Bay coastline over the past few weeks and today.NSRI and the Emergency Services are well prepared to deal with any incidents and NSRI carry emergency medical shark kits on our sea rescue craft, on NSRI rescue vehicles and our NSRI medics carry emergency medical shark kits in their private vehicles in an effort to ensure the quickest response to any incident.
