Fatal shark encounter no.8

Unfortunately, another person has been fatally wounded by a shark at Port St. John's Second Beach - the NSRI reports. He was a 72-year-old Australian at the beach as part of a tourist group. 

What is the answer to mitigate shark/human interactions in what is a wild part of South Africa's coastline? There are quite a few groups interested in doing projects in this area, but they are all hampered by the location (and fairly shite Eastern Cape government officials).  Here's hoping a local group takes charge.
