In something that reminds me of the movie Jaws, the Port San Luis Harbor District revised their policy to close getting into the ocean for 5 days after a great white shark sighting. Avila Beach business owners have argued that the ocean closures during peak toursit season has hurt their business. So now, upon a credible shark sighting there will be notices posted for 3 days.

Actually, I don’t see the big difference except for the notices being posted for 2 days shorter. If people are aware that a shark was sighted and want to get into the water, that’s there choice. I would think that posting it for 5 days (or more) is justified though but I guess the belief is that would scare away business too.
