#NetsOutNow Australia:

Drum lines and shark nets are two shark culling methods New South Wales and Queensland, Australia have used since1937 and 1962, respectively, to "protect" beach-goers from shark bites. However, these methods do not prevent shark bites and almost 70 shark bites and 3 fatalities have happened since the methods exist at these "protected" beaches. 

The lethal drum lines lure and bait sharks in; the shark nets do not enclose areas. Both methods do not prevent sharks from entering swimming areas. Additionally, both drum lines and nets occur ~500m from said beaches and undergo by catch of dolphins, whales, seals, turtles, and much more.

These attract sharks if anything due to the bait/lures and by catch caught on the lines and nets and are clearly not effective. More over, most of these sharks caught are not a threat to humans. These are detrimental methods to a healthy ocean, especially in a world where shark populations are declining world-wide. In this day and age, governments have the ability to come up with non-lethal mitigation methods.
