Manhattan Beach held a meeting taking public comment Tuesday on a proposed pier fishing ban following a man being bitten by a shark after the shark was agitated by a pier fisherman.

City officials are expected to pass an emergency declaration, NBC L.A. reports. This follows an already-instituted 60-day ban, which is set to expire in September.

The man who was bitten, Steve Robles, was bit by an agitated juvenile great white shark on July 5.
