Shark attacks feared in Hawaii after molasses spill

Hawaii health officials have warned swimmers and surfers to stay out of the waters near Honolulu harbour after a leak of 1,400 tons of molasses killed hundreds of fish, potentially attracting sharks.

The Hawaii department of health deployed three boats to remove the dead fish, and they were expected to remove thousands more in the coming weeks, said a spokeswoman, Janice Okubo.

A brown plume of sweet, sticky liquid was spotted seeping into Honolulu harbour and Keehi lagoon on Monday after a leak was discovered in a pipeline used to load the molasses on to ships operated by Matson Navigation Company, the health department said. Matson Navigation is a subsidiary of Matson Inc, which has provided Pacific-wide shipping services since 1882.

The pro's weigh in on the Hurley Pro

 

On September 15, the top 34 surfers on the WCT circuit, along with wild cards Mitch Crews and Dane Reynolds, will battle it out to take the title from the king of Lowers at the 2013 Hurley Pro.  

"Trestles is such a fun wave and the closest you can get to a skate park,” says tour standout and Hurley athlete John John Florence. “I think Kelly has been surfing Trestles for so long that he knows what works and what doesn't out there. To win at Lowers, you are going to have to mix power surfing with airs because everyone is surfing at such a high level on tour these days.”
