Researcher comfortable around sharks after lemon shark bite

Kirk Gatrich, a researcher for Florida International University who was bitten on the arm by a lemon shark about two weeks ago, says he’ll continue to work with sharks and is “completely comfortable” being around large sharks. Gatrich and a colleague were leaning over the side of a boat measuring the lemon shark when it turned its head and grabbed Gatrich by the arm.

According to WSVN-TV Gatrich is working on research that deals with the dwindling number of shark populations in the world’s oceans.
