Hua Hin authorities have taken steps to prevent further shark attacks following an incident on Sunday.

The 350 metre long net is being placed in the waters around the resort, to protect swimmers and ease fears in the area.

Werner Danielsen, 54, from Norway, was bitten by a bull shark whilst swimming close to a tourist beach at the resort. Experts believe he was fortunate for the shark may have been around a metre long and under a year old.


The man received 19 stitches to repair a damaged tendon as a result of the attack but is expected to be discharged from hospital and to make a full recovery.

Hua Hin’s waters are off limits until the the net is fully operational, which could take up to twenty days. In addition to the the shark net, warning signs are being erected in Chinese, English and Thai along the length of the beach.
