Miss these adventures with @epicdiving. People are generally ignorant about the importance of live sharks needed to maintain healthy oceans and reefs. It is more fear and the lack of education that scares humans and feeds on our ignorance.

@captainpaulwatson suggested this should be next in the series; the endangered Great Hammerhead Shark (Sphyrna mokarran). The largest of the 9 species of hammerheads have suffered some of the most severe reported population declines of any species of sharks, with fins from up to 73 million sharks ending up in the global fin trade every year.

We will donate 20% of proceeds from this print (available to pre-order soon) directly to specific @seashepherdsscs campaigns that combat illegal fishing practices in the migration routes of Great Hammerheads, which continue to threaten their existence.

@seashepherd have been patrolling the open oceans for over 40 years, protecting countless marine species (both big and small) and we are humbled to call them our partner charity πŸ™Œ | undertheskin.co.uk

Can you help us identify this gorgeous little fish?

Spotted on our house reef and only a few cm long, it must be a baby something. But what?

We have asked our resident fish geeks and no-one seems to know what it is!

Please help!

When will our fear of sharks turn into a fear for our ecosystem and an understanding of sharks place in that ecosystem? We, humans, kill 100 MILLION sharks each year, which is 11,417 sharks PER HOUR (Worm & Gruber, 2013). We are a far scarier species to them than they are to us. It's okay to appreciate and be in awe of these apex predators, but it is another to want them dead. Also, if you ever get a chance to free dive with them I encourage you to do so. They are beautiful and magnificent animals.

This over under (split) image shows a Great Shite Shark chasing chum at the end of a rope. No hooks, no harm, just tuna tied with a knot. Sometimes we are at the end of our rope when it comes to Shark Finning but we hang on so eventually (one at a time) a shark is saved for the benefit of our oceans.

Of the shark species we are seeing in Indonesia the Silvertip is surely one of my favourites. This endangered shark species is very curious but not seen often here in Indo.

Humphead Parrot Fish – The sandmakers of the sea
🌊
β€’
The magnificent Humphead Parrot fish is the largest species of parrot fish, growing up to lengths of 1.5m and weighing up to 75kg.They get their name from the large hump on their head and, their magnificent teeth which, resemble a parrot’s beak
🐦
β€’
Both the hump and the beak are essential tools on their quest for a feed of algae which, usually involves the Parrotfish chomping down on coral and rock. If their snack of choice is too big to eat, they will bump it with their head to smash it into smaller pieces before enjoying their meal. The Parrotfish then poops out a fine sand which, over time, forms islands and beaches
🏝
β€’
Typically, Humphead Parrotfish travel in large schools consisting of a harem of females lead by 1 male. Whilst all Humpheads begin life as a female, they possess hermaphroditic qualities. This means that if the male of the school decides to leave or is hunted out, the most dominant female of the school will overtime, transform into a male
✨
β€’ 
This amazing fish once swam in abundance around our oceans however, like many species, the Humphead Parrotfish population is on the decline due to overfishing and is now classed as β€œvulnerable” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species

#Sharks are critical to #marineecosystems; without them the food chain collapses. As explained by Scientific American, they’re #apexpredators that control the density and behavior of their prey, which indirectly affects the abundance of species further down the food web.

Sharks are also economically valuable. While the value of global shark catches is estimated to be around $630 million per year, this figure is steadily declining. In contrast, shark #ecotourism generates around $312 million each year worldwide and is predicted to reach around $780 million in 20 years.

πŸ”΅ Fun fact πŸ”΄ Blue shark is one of the few which migrates in something akin to a β€œschool,” or larger group of many like individuals. 
They also tend to show a distinct hierarchy within these schools, and are segregated by size as well as sex, forming groups of all females or all males.
They travel in these schools for protection, as they are a highly migratory species and long journeys can be dangerous, after all. 🦈

DRONE

1. make a continuous low humming sound.
"in the far distance a machine droned"

First time flying the Mavic 2 Pro Zoom over water. My drone captures my friend’s Phantom drone from Spain. Looks like the common dolphins are chasing the drone. Out with @newportcoastaladventure and my settings were wrong and almost lost the drone in the ocean but Capt. Alex  Shaw spotted it amd hauled axx and I was able to land with 3% battery left.

"Fear is only as deep as the mind allows." - Japanese Proverb

When I read this quote my mind immediately goes to the fear of sharks. Movies and the media paint this picture that sharks actively hunt after us. If that were true, we wouldn't be here! So many people are scared of the oceans apex predator, and even more are actively hunting them for their fins to make bland and unnutritious soup. I love representing @respect_the_fin because they are turning this fear into respect. (They even donate a portion of their proceeds to help save sharks!) Please check them out and help spread awareness on the importance of sharks in the ocean. And you can use code "LauraGarcia10" for a discount on their products! β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’

Itβ€˜s always the most beautiful feeling under water meeting one of these majestetic creatures! Every year over 100 million!!! sharks get killed only for their fins... The shark populations all over the world are droping dramatically! As apex predators they play an important role in the marine ecosystem by maintaining the species below them We need to stop this stupidity now!

Respect not fear.🦈 we were more curious of these black-tipped reef sharks than they ever were of us. The global shark population is being decimated for the voracious appetite for shark fin soup as well as other shark products like vitamin supplements. ICYMI, Sharks are killed for their fins and sold to Chinese restaurants to be served as a delicacy, usually at banquets. As a Chinese-American kid who grew up eating shark fin soup at these banquets, it was out of sheer ignorance that we continued to let it be served at family events. Shark fin soup tastes like clear, crunchy flavorless noodles in broth. Nothing too spectacular about it. In college I learned to scuba dive @paditv & did research on the Great Barrier Reef @unsw and Thailand w/ @reefcheckfoundation, 
and my fascination for everything underwater grew, especially for  sharks.  In the beginning it was hard to retrain all I have been taught to fear about these magnificent apex predators of our oceans, but after educating myself and having many personal experiences with sharks, I quickly became an advocate for them. As much as I appreciate the non-Asian outspoken shark conservationists, I think there is a more impactful way of reaching the people that actually consume shark fin. On a global scale, we need more ASIAN voices to speak up and demand legislation and enforcement against shark finning. We need to stop vilifying sharks in the media, and we need viable options (ecotourism?) for fishermen who catch sharks for fins. The truth is, unless we change the narrative to reach Asian (and specifically Chinese) audiences and make it social unacceptable to consume shark fin, it will be hard to measure impactful change. .

Our Sipadan divers this week were lucky enough to see an eagle ray cruising past in the blue as well as all the other culprits!
The jackfish, the barracuda, the bumpheads and heaps of sharks were all spotted on the first dive a couple of days ago.
At this time of year the seas are like glass and the visibility is great!
