I heard from Professor Kajiura from FAU in regard to the Blacktip migration. He had been traveling extensively in recent weeks. The professor offered a few comments in addition to the information provided by his graduate student, Shari Tellman. He added that between the close proximity of the Gulf Stream to shore and presence of calm water allows the blacktips to mass at times close to shore. He also observed that the presence of large numbers of blacktips nearshore in Palm Beach County may be a little late this year due to the unusually warm winter conditions so far this year.

Their important research has run out of funding and so will end this spring. This is unfortunate as there is still more to learn about this important shark species and the migration. Continued research might even impact the occurrence of attacks such as suffered by young Cole Taschman in time.
