The safety of South West beach goers these summer holidays will be boosted, thanks to the installation of three new satellite linked receivers - which are designed to detect sharks.

The latest installment will bring the total number of WA's receivers to 30. Others are locate in the Perth metropolitan area, Bunbury, Busselton, Meelup, Yallingup and Albany.

Dave Kelly, Minister for Fisheries and Water,  says the receivers will detect tagged sharks near Gracetown.
