Those black dots are SHARKS. All approximately 6 foot 2. 

Footage was captured of the clan on the morning of February 12, showing an estimated 10,000 blacktip sharks travelling along the shores of Palm Beach in Florida. 

Dr Stephen Kajiura, a biologist at Florida Atlantic University, assisted in getting the image and is undergoing a project to find out why these Carcharhinus limbatus' are doing this, given the fact they're usually found much further south, in Ft. Lauderdale.

He predicts it's down to rising ocean temperatures.


Sharks off Palm Beach, FL

Fantastic aerial survey flight this morning.  Thousands of sharks off Palm Beach and up to Jupiter.  Very few sharks spotted from Miami to Palm Beach.  Really looking forward to instrumenting some sharks with transmitters tomorrow.  Original 4K video uploaded for viewing - be sure to watch in HD.
