to shark conservation by developing
shark deterrents that repel sharks
from baited hooks without affecting
the catch of targeted species. In
addition to his sensory physiology
research, Dr Kajiura studies the
massive seasonal aggregation of
blacktip sharks in south Florida. He
incorporates aerial surveys with
tagging and acoustic telemetry to
document the migration of these
sharks along the US eastern
His presentation will be based on
his finds in regards to our 10,000
residents sharks off our coastline of
West Palm Beach. He has been metal
detecting for 34 years.
Dr Kajiura has conducted
research for various agencies
including the National Science
Foundation, the Department of

published over 40 papers in peerreviewed journals and has presented
conferences. He has supervised
