Thousands of sharks migrate close to Florida beaches

Anyone looking to hit the beaches in Florida may want to steer clear of the water as thousands of sharks are currently migrating right off the coast of some popular beach towns.

Stephen Kajiura, Florida Atlantic University biological sciences professor, captured images last week of blacktip sharks invading the waters of Palm Beach, on Florida's Atlantic coast. The majority of shark bites that occur in Florida are attributed to this species, but according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, there has never been a fatal attack credited to the blacktip shark in this region.

This footage is from late January.
