A fisherman swabs the mouth of a blacktip shark.

Tens of thousands of sharks have recently been spotted near the shores of South Florida’s beaches as part of their annual migration north. 

Most of the sharks are blacktip and spinner sharks, which are not considered dangerous to humans, although they can bite. Many beaches are closed for swimming as a precaution. 

Fishermen in Palm Beach are taking advantage of this opportunity to catch sharks, . The migration coincides with spring break, when a large number of college students and other visitors head to the beaches to party and relax. The fishermen drew huge crowds as it dragged one shark onto shore.

 

There’s no law that prohibits fishermen from being on the beach, but it still puts beach-goers at unnecessary risk of being bit.  

The sharks are being caught for research. Once a shark is reeled in, the inside of its mouth is swabbed for bacteria that will be used to develop medicine for shark bites, according to wptv.com.
