Belmar Shark Warning is a Hoax

A warning about shark sightings off Belmar that gives the appearance of being issued by the U.S. Coast Guard is a fake.

And if you were worried, take solace that people in Santa Cruz, California, and perhaps elsewhere, fretted about the same thing.

The image has been galloping through cyberspace in addition to showing up on poles.

Coast Guard operators in the Point Pleasant Beach-Manasquan station have sent it to their investigative team to determine the source.

They tell us that they received no reports from swimmers or boaters about shark activity.

Lifeguard teams on the Jersey coast and the Coast Guard maintain steady watch and an elaborate alert system. The Manasquan station can be reached at 732-899-0130.
