SHARK nets will be temporarily removed from Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Rainbow Beach today and tomorrow due to large swell expected over the coming days.

Surf Life Saving Queensland says rough weather has caused the nets to come loose and could become a danger to swimmers and wildlife.

Nets may be removed from other beaches on Friday depending on forecasts.

SLSQ said lifesavers and lifeguards would constantly be on the lookout for shark activity.
