WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Sharks are migrating in larger numbers along the Florida coast than in the previous year, researchers say.
Researchers with Florida Atlantic University track the migration of blacktip sharks along the U.S. coastal waters off Florida’s southern coast and have for more than eight years.
Professor Stephen Kajiura, Ph.D. and his team track the sharks using boat, plane, and drone to report their whereabouts. They also tag and release them so they can track their path.
On any given day, researchers have reported as many as 15,000 sharks, however, last year, the blacktip shark numbers were smaller.
