The video was taken by Dr. Stephen Kajiura of Florida Atlantic University.

Kajiura is studying the migration of the blacktip shark, a very common shark in the state.

He told BuzzFeed News that part of his research includes aerial surveys, which helps him track their movements.

"You could literally just stand on the shore and throw a rock and hit a shark," Kajiura said.

"Hopefully this is great outlet to inform the public ... the sharks are not out to get you," he said.

He explained that sharks do this migration every year, and they rarely bite humans in Florida. "We have relatively few bites on people compared to the number of sharks."
