Landscape Photographer from the South West of Western Australia

Salmon fishing (commercial)

The annual salmon run has commenced in the south west of WA. These are Australian salmon and they are nothing like Atlantic salmon. They are probably called salmon because of their annual migration from Ceduna in South Australia around the South West coast and up as far north as Rottnest and beyond. The netting process obviously attracts sharks who are following the schools of salmon, and I have been enjoying the opportunity to get some good shots of bronze whalers closeup (often 10m from the shore or less). The drone shots add another dimension to the experience.

 

The drone shots are here. I thought there were some sharks in the net but it is just weed. Notice in some shots the salmon escaping.
