TweetFacebookHELICOPTER surveillance will return to Hunter beaches from Saturday to offer an extra layer of vigilance during the Easter school holidays, the NSW government has announced.

NSW Primary Industries Minister Niall Blair said on Friday, the last day of the school term, that helicopter surveillance of beaches would run daily, right along the NSW coastline, during the break.

“We want to ensure our beaches are as safe as they can be across these school holidays,” Mr Blair said.

“Over the summer our shark spies were very effective at spotting any potential dangers and, on 78 occasions, assisted local authorities and NSW Police to evacuate the water.”

The return of the aerial surveillance follows a surfer suffering a bite at One Mile beach, in Port Stephens,last weekend.

He suffered lacerations to his left foot and calf in the incident, which occurred shortly after 5pm on Sunday.

Beachgoers are encouraged to avoid swimming when it is dark or during twilight hours, in murky waters after recent heavy rainfall and flooding, and to avoid areas used by local fishers where possible.
