Shark nets to be installed at Hua Hin beach tomorrow

Talk News is reporting that authorities in Hua Hin have finally decided who is responsible for installing a shark net at Sai Noi beach. This is the location where a Norweigan tourist was bitten in April this year.

54 year old Werner Danielsen (at the time of the attack) has since returned to Norway after amassing hundreds of thousands baht hospital bills. Thai authorities paid some of these bills at the time.

Talk News says that buoys and signs were erected to warn tourists of the danger of potential shark attack. Authorities say the attacks were the first of their kind in Thailand.

After discussions it has now been decided that the Hua Hin administration is responsible for preventative measures and they are budgeting 400,000 baht for a 300 metre net – 50 metres offshore at a depth of three metres.

The nets are ready to be deployed from tomorrow and should take five days to install.
