KSBY 6 News is reporting that a shark advisory has been issued for Port San Luis and Avila Beach.
Port San Luis Harbor Patrol says at about 9 a.m. Wednesday a sea lion was found with an evident shark bite. Harbor managers say a sea lion was attacked by a shark but at this time they do not know the location of the attack.
As a precaution, Harbor Patrol has posted a shark advisory sign throughout Port San Luis and Avila Beach. The signs warn folks to enter the water at their own risk and will be posted for 3 days. Harbor managers say the sea lion is still alive.
A comment posted by an Amy Taylor on the KSBY website indicates a high level of apparent shark activity in this area: “What about all the seals that washed up on Shell Beach this weekend? There must have been at least 4 of them.”
