CAPE TOWN - The Great White Shark Foundation has complained it has been sidelined by environmental officials in the research on Great White Sharks along the False Bay coast.

The foundation made the comments during a public hearing at the Western Cape Legislature on Tuesday.

The hearing was aimed at finding ways on how to best protect the predators, while not compromising the safety of beach users.

The foundation's chairperson Mariette Hopley said, “We are very unhappy with the way the planning went ahead. We were excluded from this planning process from the research side.”

The department said it will also be tagging about 40 great sharks as part of the study.

It has also emerged that a shark died during a research project, but details as to where and when this occurred were still unclear.
