Scientist reports tens of thousands of sharks off Florida coast | B98.5 [cached]

Dr. Stephen Kajiura, a biological sciences professor at Florida Atlantic University, took the video during his weekly black tip shark migration surveys.
Kajiura, who has been featured on "Shark Week," said that there were not many sharks south of Boynton Beach or in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. He told WPEC that when his survey reached Palm Beach, "It was loaded-literally tens of thousands of sharks." "It's so cool," he said.

Get To Know 6 Local Shark Experts And How They Work To Educate The Public About The Brilliant Creatures [cached]

The number of people being bitten by sharks is simply rising proportionally, suggest local researchers like Stephen Kajiura, biological sciences professor at Florida Atlantic University.
"If you look at the number of people who move to Florida each day, it's dramatic, and those people are coming here for the beaches," he says. Stephen Kajiura Biological sciences professor, Florida Atlantic University Shark researcher Stephen Kajiura was 21 when he first saw the ocean, though he'd been enthralled by sharks since age 4. "Little kids love animals. Anything that was in the ocean was cool, and sharks in particular were, ugh, so cool," he says. The Canadian grew up far away from them, however, and learned about sharks through the Jacques Cousteau specials he'd watch. "When you go diving in a lake up in Ontario, you see one fish-that's exciting," he says. Kajiura first came upon the Atlantic Ocean during a field excursion in college, and then in pursuit of his master's degree, he made his first appearance in Florida. Kajiura later returned to South Florida's warm waters for a full-time faculty position at FAU in Boca Raton, where, during the last six years, he has carved a niche for himself researching blacktip sharks' migration patterns. "What happened was I would get inquiries from local TV stations every winter: 'Our helicopters are seeing all these sharks right off the coast-should I be concerned?'" There wasn't much literature on the subject, so Kajiura decided to look into it himself. Now every winter during the sharks' migration season, Kajiura takes out his own helicopter on a weekly basis to count the number of sharks visiting South Florida waters and monitors them with tracking devices. In fact, footage he took of tens of thousands of sharks swimming close to shore went viral earlier this year. Tens of thousands of blacktip sharks are seen swimming off the coast of Palm Beach this past winter. (Photo by Stephen Kajiura)
