About Grant Johnson

 


 

Grant is originally from Minneapolis and has lived on South Bimini for the past 7 years. He joined Bimini Sands in June of 2007. 

 

He managed the Bimini Biological Field Station (SharkLab) on South Bimini from June of 2001 until May of 2007.  Grant has thousands of hours of experience with the wildlife of Bimini in and out of the water, everything from snakes to sharks. He’s caught and tagged hundreds of sharks, as well as many stingrays and several Smalltooth Sawfish. He’s also caught multiple lemon sharks, tiger sharks, bull sharks and one Smalltooth sawfish without the use of hooks or nets. 

 

Recently Grant started a tagging project on the endangered Bimini Boa and a tree planting program with the All Age School on North Bimini. The tree program helped plant over 400 coconut palms and more than 1000 mangrove seeds around Bimini.

 

Grant has been active in conservation and environmental education efforts on the island for years and given numerous presentations on conservation in local schools and churches. He has a B.Sc. degree in Biology.
