Closed. Let the sharks be. Almost all the heavily populated areas of Australia are coastal. Either get over the fear of the (rare) shark attack, or stay out of the water. Unnecessary to kill a creature simply for leisure activities.

Bad idea_Leave the sharks alone. That's where they live.

This is difficult. Generally I'd say it's our fault for getting into the sharks' habitat. If there's anything non-violent that can be done to discourage them, why not that?
