Shark species responsible for fatal attack known

A TIGER shark up to three metres in length has been confirmed as the culprit responsible for the fatal attack that claimed the life of body boarder Zach Young at Campbell's Beach Korora on Saturday.   

A shark biologist with the NSW Department of Primary Industries Dr Amy Smoothey has confirmed the news today following a detailed forensic analysis of the victim's wounds.   

Dr Smoothey found the shark was likely to be a three metre long Tiger Shark.

The shark species was confirmed using analysis of the interdental distances and jaw width and by comparing them to the three main predatory shark species.
