Manhattan Beach City Temporarily Bans Pier Fishing
Attorney Joe Modlin currently sees clients through his private practice in Sacramento, California. When he’s not practicing as an attorney at law, Joe Modlin enjoys the sport of fishing.
Earlier in July 2014, Manhattan Beach City made the decision to temporarily ban pier fishing after a local swimmer was attacked by a great white shark that a fisherman had hooked and attempted to reel in for more than a half an hour. Originally the ban was expected to last from Saturday to Tuesday, but now it has been extended to a length of 60 days. During this fishing ban, officials will scour the area and study the incident in order to assess any future threats.
The well-known group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has spoken out and urged the city to make this ban permanent. Fishing in a populated area increases the chance of shark attacks, they argue; further, the group claims that many people who fish make a game of hooking and taunting sharks, which can rile up an animal who is otherwise uninterested in human prey.
