In Indonesia's Cendrawasih Bay, whale sharks often congregate around bagan (lift net) fishing platforms to eat the small silverside baitfish that the fishers are targeting. Sometimes the sharks swim right into the nets and become entangled. Local fishermen are considering modifying the lift net design in a way that prevents the sharks from entering.
