The lemon shark bite was only reported at 10.30am today near Varanus Island, about 120km west of Karratha.

According to a St John Ambulance spokeswoman, the man was attacked around 8.30 p.m. on Tuesday and sustained significant but non-life-threatening injuries.

He sustained "a few bites" to his body, she stated, and first aid was administered on-board the vessel.

This included administering pain medication and cleaning and bandaging his wounds.

“I believe they did an admirable job — they kept the bleeding under control,” she said.

The vessel traveled through the night to Exmouth, where paramedics met them at approximately 10.30 a.m.

The man was transported to Exmouth Hospital and is currently in a stable condition.

It is unknown whether he will require further treatment in Perth.

According to the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, the attack was carried out by a lemon shark, which can grow to nearly 4m in length.
