Pasco Sheriffs Aviation United filmed the unidentified sharks off Anclote Sandbar earlier this week.

They uploaded the shark-infested video to social media warning swimmers of the potential danger.

“A day in the water is a fun way to beat our Florida heat, but it’s important to be aware of the dangers below the water as well as above,” it wrote.

Beachgoers were urged to familiarise themselves with their surroundings and to “keep a fully charged phone and first aid kit close by for emergencies”.

It’s a trend the US state has followed “for decades”.

The state had 28 unprovoked shark bites last year – none were fatal. Volusia County had the most shark bites at 17, representing 63 per cent of the state’s total.

Some of the shark species commonly found off Florida include: the lemon shark, blacktip shark, nurse sharks, tiger sharks, bull sharks and great hammerheads.
