"It's a sad day for Queensland when Annastacia Palaszczuk puts sharks before the safety of people.
"Labor has rolled over and significantly weakened the Shark Control Program.
"This is a program that has protected our beaches and waterways for almost 60 years.
"It is beyond belief that 173 drumlines used to protect Queenslanders in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park could be removed.
"This is a kneejerk reaction and these drumlines should still be used until every legal avenue possible has been exhausted.
"It's time for Annastacia Palaszczuk to show leadership and put people before sharks."
