EVERY WINTER, THOUSANDS OF HUNGRY SHARKS migrate along the Atlantic coast of Florida, often swimming within a few feet of shore.
The largest annual shark migration in U.S. coastal waters, it coincides with Florida’s winter tourist season.
Each year, the sharks head for bays and estuaries along the southeastern U.S. coast to mate and give birth. It is a continuous and seasonal shark behavior!
2013’s migration coincided with spring break — college students orgy party — so beaches were closed in some areas. Look at this giant swarm of sharks migrating up the East Coast from Boca Raton to Jupiter in March 2013!
Over the years, blacktips have been blamed for about 20 percent and spinners for 16 percent of unprovoked shark attacks in Florida.
