Gabe Tiffany, Deputy Director of Administration at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, told NBC that the department has constraints on how its programs are funded.
Leopard sharks aren't threatened or endangered, and the department is not allocating any funds towards finding the cause of the shark deaths.
Researchers say that the deaths may be due to a parasite that enters via the nose and eats the brain slowly.
While the parasite is deadly to sharks and other marine animals, it is unlikely that humans who swim in the bay or who eat infected animals will become infected themselves.
It survived the 1906 earthquake and fire which destroyed a large portion of San Francisco.
As such, Dr Okihiro says that leopard shark deaths may be higher than current estimates.Between February and July of 2017, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates that 1,000-2,000 leopard sharks died in the San Francisco Bay.As the parasite slowly eats away that the brain, it causes the sharks to swim in circles or beach themselves.The Finns Aaron Sjöstrom and Otto Reinhold Rehn served as the parish organists/sextons during the same period.In 1841, under the governorship of Russian America by Finnish Arvid Adolf Etholén (1840–1845) (promoted to rear admiral in 1847), the Russian-American area of Fort Ross in Bodega Bay, California, was sold to Johann Sutter.
While it is not Dr Okihiro's job to research why the sharks are dying, he has been researching them in his own time, performing necropsies in his kitchen living room and patio.
