Dr. Stephen M. Kajiura, Professor of Biological Sciences at Florida Atlantic University, monitors shark abundance as they overwinter off our coast and migrate northward. These sharks have shifted their distribution to higher latitudes in response to warming oceans. If Florida were to be deprived of these seasonally-important predators in the future, it could have cascading effects through the food chain.
