Take a look at this beyond stunning picture showcasing the beauty of our underwater life and smiling sharks! Enormous thanks to @bradleuephotography for this piece of art! 📷

To some sharks may seem scary, but in fact they are some of the most majestic animals! What is even more striking is that sharks are under a huge threat called - shark fin soup! This soup is made from shark fins which are cruelly cut off from alive sharks. Afterwards they are thrown back into the oceans without any chances to survive. Sharks are the essence of healthy oceans and well managed ecosystems. The demand of the shark fin soup has lead to consequences where the existence of sharks is endangered. We must act now or we will lose these precious creatures and may come across collapsed marine life!

Let's raise the awareness and keep our oceans and sharks protected! 🌍🌊👍

Trust! As we waited at the Bonaire shipwreck, we had several lemons cruising around the bait. Occasionally we would see a giant dorsal fin emerging from the blue water. I had to squint my eyes to see if it was it was what you were hoping her to be… Until she slowly started coming closer. It took a good 15 minutes to get her to trust that we weren't going to harm her. Slowly she came closer and closer to the bait where Roger continuously wiggled the dead fish to entice her in. Several passes she came in so close, but not trusting just yet… Finally as we were just about to have to start our ascent to the surface, she let go of that fear and came in for her snack. What a beautiful moment to watch a fearful, timid wild animal begin to understand that we were not there to hurt her. I hope she won't trust humans and always remains skeptical because far too many want to harm her. chaos. @deepobsession_charters. #shark #sharks #savesharks #stopfinning #stopsharkfinning #hammerhead #florida #scubadiver #scubadive #scubadiving #scuba #nikon #nikon_photography_ #nikonphotography #nauticam #tokina #tokina1017 #uwphotography #underwaterphotography #sharkweek #wideangle #wideanglelens #photooftheday #photography #photographer #beauty #ocean

@nakaweproject - SIGN THE PETITION 👌🏻👆🏻(Link on the bio) to ask Walmart stores to stop selling threatened species of sharks and rays and to label all meat sold with the species name! 👆FOLLOW THE LINK IN OUR BIO 👆TO SIGN THE PETITION NOW!

Walmarts in Canada, Mexico, and Central America are selling shark and ray meat under non-descriptive names such as “Cazon” or “Bolillo.” Because of this, there is no way for consumers to know if they are eating an endangered species. We think this is unacceptable and are petitioning Walmart to stop selling threatened shark and ray species in their stores. This includes any species listed as “threatened,” “endangered,” or “critically endangered” on the IUCN redlist. We are also asking Walmart to label all shark and ray meat sold with the species name so that consumers can avoid purchasing threatened species. Chondrichthyan fishes (sharks, rays, and their relatives) are the most threatened group of vertebrates in the world. If fishing pressures are not reduced many species of sharks and rays will soon be extinct. Supermarket giants like Walmart hold a lot of power in environmental issues such as this. If they stop selling threatened species in their stores, we can significantly reduce the demand for these species globally. Our hope is that reducing the demand for threatened species will give their populations a chance to recover.

**Misool Bluewater Shark Baitball: Oceanic blacktip, grey reef, and possible bull sharks join bonito as they pursue fleeing sardines! WATCH THE FULL VIDEO ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE OR ON YOUTUBE BY CLICKING THE LINK IN MY BIO**
This past April, having just returned to @misoolecoresort's jetty after and another brilliant dive with oceanic manta rays on a legendary seamount within the reserve, I noticed a disturbance on the surface with birds in chase, just a few hundred meters south of the jetty. We raced out on the dive tender to investigate, and when I jumped into the water, I discovered bonito and dozens of #sharks hammering a frantic sardine bait ball! These were not just the ordinary reef sharks found on Misool’s reefs, but instead I found myself surrounded by oceanic blacktip sharks, grey reef sharks, and what appeared to be several bull sharks – a species I had personally never seen in Raja Ampat, and had believed to be effectively depleted beyond recovery within the reserve!
Over a decade ago when we started the Misool Marine Reserve project, shark populations were so severely depleted that I never imagined I would witness something so spectacular as shark baitball within the reserve. Beyond the thrilling experience and exciting imagery, this encounter suggested that the benefits of larger coastal marine reserves might extend beyond the reefs and into the blue.
The shark baitball I experienced in Misool is living proof of the incredible resilience of the oceans, and an important reminder that we can make a real difference, if only we give nature a fighting chance! #savesharks #conservation #misool #baitball #underwater #sharks #ocean #indonesia

An awesome start to the Shark day on Koh Tao held by @masterdiverskohtao. Here you can see Shark Guardian Dive Leader Josh leading an educational session for our new Diver (or snorkel) program using our fab flip chart. 25 Danish students are now clued up about sharks and conservation with Data from the snorkel sessions entered to eOceans. And lots of people saw sharks too!

We'll soon be saying goodbye to #FinHugger and @oceansresearch intern, Courtney. She's spent the month of April researching the shark species of Mossel Bay and will be heading back to Sydney to spread the word about Keep Fin Alive, plastic pollution and shark conservation.

With such diversity in the ocean, how do we differentiate and identify species? The identification of individual animals over temporal and spatial scales can provide wholistic estimates of population size and distribution. Fortunately nature gave us some easy ones... #WhaleSharks (Rhincodon typus) have distinct characteristics (spot patterns) that remain stable over time and can be matched using photo-identification methods in multiple aggregation areas (Brooks, K. Pierce, S.J 2010). Identification of less obvious species can be difficult. Physical "field marks" are a useful tool: #GreatWhiteSharks (Carcharodon carcharias) are characterised by their heavy spindle-shaped bodies, moderately long conical snout, flat, triangular, serrated blade-like teeth, large dorsal fin with the dorsal surface lead grey to blackish above, ventral surface of body white and iris of eye conspicuously black (Compagno, LJV 2001). Abnormalities to these characteristics can be used to identify individual #sharks. A common form of shark species identification currently occurs in #fishmarkets. Based on information from traders and morphological inspection, scientists hypothesise matches between market names and shark taxa for #sharkfins. They test this theory using DNA based species identification techniques, which provides stochastic models to estimate the contribution of each taxon by weight to the #fintrade (Clarke, SC. Jennifer, E 2006). #stopsharkfinsoup #stopsharkfinning #savesharks Post by @saltybluegypsy. Photos by @oceanicramsey @Juansharks @marina_oceanlove featuring divers @seajewl @oceanicramsey
