Town installs piranha net to protect bathers - News - Travel - smh.com.au
A resort town in Brazil hopes a steel-and-plastic net will stop piranhas from taking a bite out of bathers - and its tourist industry.
Authorities in Palmas in central Brazil say 180 cases of bathers being bitten by piranhas have been reported so far this year at La Prata beach on an artificial lake that is a major tourist draw.
The figure is three times more than in all 2006.
