A two-month monitoring program was unable to locate a white shark in Western Australia.

Australia’s ABC News reports that a 2-month long shark monitoring project, carried out by Western Australia’s Department of Fisheries, did not result in the tagging of a single great white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) south-west Western Australia. The reason no white sharks were tagged as part of the monitoring project was due to the fact that team was unable to locate any of the species in the area while the research was taking place.

While no white sharks were located, the program was still considered successful as other species of sharks were tagged during the monitoring project.
