Justin Viezbicke, of the National Marine Fisheries Service, says it's no cause for inordinate worry.
"Any time you have a dead animal in the water or the near shore, there is an increased likelihood of shark activity," said Viezbicke. "That's just a reality of the ocean. But if we can get the whale out of the water and off of the beach in a day or two, I don't anticipate there'll be much of a problem. The drainage is what's bringing the sharks in - when they're sensing the blood that's in the water. So long as we remove all of that, we can get back to normal operations down there for surfing."
According to Viezbicke, one condition for vigilance after a whale stranding is when the event occurs during a period of prevailing onshores, which marked the forecast for much of San Diego and Orange County over the weekend. But the churning, equalizing nature of ocean currents eventually flushes matter out. In other words, the sea's clockwork will take its course.
So what was the cause for the whale's death? Initial tests on Monday from Viezbicke's crew are inconclusive, but the carcass appears to show no teeth markings, nor any signs of netting entanglement.
The challenge now, he says, will be to conduct more research without attracting more crowds who gather to take pictures of the whale's corpse.
"It's that fine balance between how much you can accomplish on the beach without causing too much commotion among the public. Any time you take apart a 40-foot whale, it isn't the cleanest of processes," Viezbicke says.
In the meantime, Viezbicke advises against unnecessary stress over the beaching, if you're a surfer. Time and old-fashioned common sense should restore order at Trestles. But for a few days, it's probably better to be safe than sorry, even though no recent shark sightings have been reported.
"Once the whale is off the beach, I would feel very comfortable about going back there. You just keep an eye on the conditions," says Viezbicke.
