Thousands of Migrating Sharks Close Florida Beaches

Quote:
The huge shoal of sharks which has shut down beaches in Florida, is migrating up the east coast of the US to North Carolina.
Tens of thousands of the predators, mostly blacktip and spinner sharks, are moving north for their annual migration.
Researchers at Florida Atlantic University said they had counted about 15,000 sharks.
Experts said the sharks usually migrate earlier in the year during the winter. This year the migration is about a month later than expected.
Local television news stations filmed thousands of sharks in the clear waters off the Florida coast.
Elizabeth Horowitz, who lives across from the beach at Palm Beach, was hoping to catch another glimpse of the sharks on Wednesday.
"People really need to heed these warnings, " she said. "Thank God it's a public beach and they have lifeguards."
Local lifeguards were worried about keeping beach-goers out of the water as the peak of spring holidays approach.
While they're experienced at shark sightings, Lifeguard Supervisor Craig Pollock said this year the sharks were coming closer to the shore.
"A lot of times when we have a sandbar, the sharks stay off the shore a little further about 50 to 100 yards," he said.

Re: Thousands of Migrating Sharks Close Florida Beaches

It must be the tourist in me but why surf when you can admire such a vast display of nature?

With the way the fishing industry is going about the place, mass migrations like these will be rare in the future. There is a point which even large numbers of fish just collapse in population.
