THE future of an 18ft, two-tonne great white shark is uncertain after Vic Hislop announced his Hervey Bay Shark Show would close permanently this month.
Filled with newspaper clippings, videos and a frozen great white shark, the museum has been a landmark in the Bay for more than 30 years.
News of the closure was announced on Saturday evening via the museum's Facebook page.
"It is with our deepest regret we inform you all that unfortunately the Vic Hislop Shark Show is closing," it read.
In 2013 Mr Hislop refurbished the show, adding whale exhibitions and new documentaries.
The weekend's closure announcement was met with community sadness.
Mr Hislop was not available for comment.
