Talk News said that the authorities in Hua Hin have finally decided who is responsible for installing a shark net at Sai Noi beach where a Norweigan tourist was bitten five months back in mid-April. 

 

Werner Danielsen, 54 at the time of the attack, has since gone back to Norway after amassing hundreds of thousands in hospital bills some of which were paid by the Thai authorities. 

 

Initially buoys and signage were put out to warn tourists of the danger of shark attack - they were the first of their kind in Thailand. 

 

Now after discussions it has been decided that the Hua Hin administration is responsible for preventative measures and they are shelling out 400,000 baht for a 300 meter long net, 50 meters out at a depth of three meters. 

 

Talk News said that D-Day for the start of the net installation was September 20th and it would take five days to complete.
