HONOLUA BAY, MAUI REOPENED, SHARKS NO LONGER SPOTTED
(Honolulu) – Access to the Honolua Bay Marine Life Conservation District on Maui has been reopened after having been closed since Tuesday afternoon, June 26. The closure had been prompted by the continued presence of sharks in the bay, apparently attracted to dead fish.
The bay has been continuously monitored ever since the closure began. On Monday morning, July 2, there was no sign of sharks in the bay. Access to the bay has been restored.
