Beachgoers briefly evacuated the water Thursday afternoon as a marine animal was spotted near the shore between 53rd and 54th street in Miami Beach.

Miami Beach Ocean Rescue couldn't say for sure what kind of animal it was because of murky conditions, but they believe that it was a Tarpon fish as they have been spotted requently in the past few weeks.

Miami Beach Ocean Rescue says the water is safe to swim in.
