The NSRI (National Sea Rescue Institute) and Ndlambe Municipality are urging the public to be cautious for those along the Port Alfred coastline, as a visible shark has been spotted.
After the carcass of a Humpback whale was discovered just a kilometer off-shore on the Western edge of Port Alfred, awareness was drawn to the presence of a shark in the waters.
“We are appealing to bathers, paddlers and boaters to be cautious due to the increased shark presence attracted by the whale carcass and we are appealing to bathers to not swim at Port Alfred beaches because of the increased shark presence,” says the NSRI.
It seems to be that the whale carcass is drifting closer to the shore, and is anticipated to beach soon. The situation, as the NSRI expresses is being monitored.
