On Tuesday, the Venice City Council voted to ban shark fishing on the pier and on all city beaches.

There are some state laws that are set to take effect, including a Shore Based Shark Fishing permit, a ban on chumming and limitations on the type of shark that can be caught.

The new state laws will go into effect next Tuesday, July 1st, and the city is now drafting an ordinance banning shark fishing. This will likely go into effect by the end of next month.
