Swimming in Ginowan’s beaches prohibited after sighting of shark

October 14, 2016 Ryukyu Shimpo

Swimming was prohibited in Chatan beaches after the sighting of a shark, reportedly a Bull shark, in the Mihama area of the Town. Since October 12, swimming in Tropical beach in the Mashiki area of Ginowan City has also been prohibited. This is the third beach to have swimming banned, after Sunset Beach and Araha Beach in Chatan.

After the Chatan Town fisheries cooperative started preparing to hunt the shark, Ginowan City prohibited swimming in the city for fear of the shark fleeing to beaches around the city. Depending on how the shark hunt goes, the municipalities will determine when to resume allowing people to swim. As of October 13, there were no reports of shark sightings to the managers of Tropical Beach
