Beachgoers in Santa Barbara were warned to look out for a great white shark.

A 15-foot shark was spotted Monday near the entrance of Santa Barbara Harbor.

A fisherman told officials he saw the shark between Stearns Wharf and the breakwater, not far from where kayakers and paddle-boarders were in the water. The sighting is considered credible.

Warning signs were posted at 14 different locations near city beaches.
