La Jolla Shark Advisory Confirms Sharks In Ocean

Tuesday afternoon, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department issued a shark advisory in La Jolla after several witnesses reported seeing a five foot shark in the ocean.

While a five-foot shark is not considered a huge threat, the shark munching on a sea lion  prompted the advisory, according to a statement from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

“We either have two separate sightings in the same general vicinity (one shark and one sea lion), or the witnesses all saw a sea lion feeding on a fish but perceived it as a shark,” according to Monica Munoz, an SDFD spokeswoman. “We are acting out of an abundance of caution.”

While the 2.5 mile stretch north of the Mushroom House was not closed to swimmers or surfers, it was an important reminder that sharks are in the ocean.
