The contracts for drum lines and net operators require them to be cleared every 48 hours at least so it's not all that likely sharks see their captured friends.
Do you have any theories about how or why they seem to work?

Plenty of gamefish stuck with dumb tags by game fishers in the NSW DPI program over the years have been recaptured. Are gamefish like marlin, tuna etc more "stupid" than sharks?
Would be interesting to see the shark recapture stats from DPI, though they are overwhelmingly makos and whalers.

The smell of death lingers. Sharks enter those locations into their shark sat navs and avoid them.

Glad you cleared that up Pinhead. Who knows what other anthropomorphic nonsense we would have to consider. It’s so obvious they have sat nav. Cnuts.

I don't think there's enough evidence yet to say that they do work, tbh.i couldn't find any decent papers in a brief search.

I think it may affect their feeding behaviour (or avoiding suspended baits), so they're less likely to be recaptured, but not necessarily their site fidelity.
Maybe they weren't going to stick around anyway.

We didn't really have the data for the recapture rates in nets and 'dumb' drumlines, so maybe there's just a whole lot more sharks than we first thought.

Yikes, so Winter is when they turn up. The one at Tuncurry just hangs there all year.

June to November (broadly speaking).
Some were spotted this year at Port Mac as early as April

Cudgen Reef featured prominently in his testing of the Powerhead.

Your consistency on this issue is better than science Lats.
