a male queen coris wrasse (coris formosa), another one of the 500+ fish species recently recorded during a rapid biodiversity assessment, carried out by researchers and our d’arros research centre team.
this species of fish is widely distributed in the western indian ocean, from the southern red sea to natal, south africa and east to sri lanka. adults are found in weedy and algae rich areas near seagrass beds and at depths between 2– 45 metres, where it feeds on hard-shelled prey, including crustaceans, mollusks and sea urchins.

Sharing @oneoceandiving @madi_makoff recap of @juansharks footage did you know that sharks often use other senses to find their prey besides vision and smell? in addition to the 5 senses we have, sharks have an additional 2 for a total of 7. one of these additional senses includes electroreception via the ampullae of lorenzini which allows sharks to detect bioelectric fields produced by prey. in a laboratory behavioral experiment (kalmijn 1971) with the catshark (scyliorhinus canicula) and the skate (raja clavata), tested their feeding responsiveness
(hueter et. al 2004). the seawater agar screened chamber allowed the flounders bioelectric field to pass through but not its smell. the scientists observed that when the prey was covered in a thin plastic film that insulated the prey electrically the flounder remained undetected (hueter et. al) meaning when the flounder’s electric field was masked the shark could not find it. later in an field experiment kalmijn (1982) with free-range sharks like the smooth dogfish (mustelus canis) and blue shark (prionace  glauca) it was found that the sharks were attracted to the area by an odor, however, they would only “attack an  active  dipole  source
that  simulated  the  prey’s  bioelectric  field  rather  than  the  odor  source  of  the  prey” (hueter et. al 2004). sharks are so much smarter than we give them credit for. they have over 400 million years of evolution and play a important role in the ocean's ecosystem! πŸ¬πŸŒŠπŸ’™

i’ve been a and groupie/shark advocate for awhile now, and have been dying to go out with them to swim with sharks. lovely experience. beautiful animals. πŸ€—check them outπŸ€—
every year over 100 million sharks are killed by humans. we must do more to care and respect for them. photo cred: πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ you were right. all i wanted was for them to be closer 😍

Baleen whales, like humpback whales, have baleen instead of teeth. the baleen acts like a pasta strainer, filtering out water and mud while trapping food!

#repost from with an iconic photo of . we’re very excited to continue and expand upon the conservation message behind this photo with the upcoming release of coming soon! follow along for all the latest details and updates. ・・・
the moments that define us, that epitomizes what i love and live for. and “bella” (the great white shark) grabbing the whole worlds attention over night & changing perceptions when great white sharks needed it the most. at the time studies were reporting great white shark populations to be less than 350 in the north west pacific. ocean and i decided to take immediate action by getting images of “anti-jaws-movie” human-shark coexistence that no one thought would be possible. images that would shatter the perception that sharks are mindless monsters. we’ve worked for decades with sharks and constantly capturing images that get people to look past the fear that movies and media traditionally created and get people inspired to care about the possible extinction of sharks. a huge thanks to for spreading the video and these images to the world and supporting shark conservation. #goproforacause #gopro #gopro3000 #oceanramsey #helpsavesharks #savesharks #sharkandfreediver #freedivingwithsharks #swimmingwithsharks #shark #sharks #apexpredatornotmonster #sharkconservation #photooftheday #greatwhiteshark #coexist #freediving #ocean #amazing #marinebiologist photo by #juanoliphant using

Somersaults for tigers presenting the acrobatic tigerking @juansharks photo by @oceanramsey from last summer visit by on tour. can’t wait to see her again πŸ’• tigersharks are highly misunderstood. some published papers acknowledge their preferential feeding on detriment complimentary to a semi-solitary, cautious behavioral norms. tigers have large thoracic cavity with small pectoral fins. . . like a t rex!!! however sharks have been on the planet pre dinosaurs. a continuing story of success.

Currently, the one of the most serious threats to the endangered north atlantic right whale is death or injury from entanglement in fishing gear. happily, this particular whale was successfully disentangled by a team of trained state and federal biologists!

Apex predators not monsters: bull shark mumma lookingπŸ”₯af
each year around 100 million sharks (that's about 3 sharks every second) are killed for their fins. shark populations have declined up to 90% due to fin trade. bycatch by longline fishing puts extreme pressure on shark populations, studies predict extinction of some species within 10 years. due to low reproductive rate (sexual maturity reached within 7 to 20 years in most species) populations take long time before recovering leaving ecosystems at great risk

support @seashepherd campaigns against shark finning

great fun diving with these beauties, this time scubieing with legends @maxence.photography @kajawierucka james @owenpal
