✨They don’t show up when you hope or expect to see them. They arrive unexpectedly, without notice, and take your breath away. You can’t predict wild.✨
Whenever I am lucky enough to see a Tiger Shark I can’t help but think, “Wow what a beautiful animal.” It’s impossible that this breathtaking pattern doesn’t catch your eye and steal your heart. Some people may initially think that seeing sharks in the wild is terrifying due to the hype and bad reputation put on them by the media. However, each time I take people shark diving @oneoceandiving that fear quickly fades and people are enamored by sharks. Wild, strong, and mysterious, these animals are the backbone of our oceans. They need our protection as shark populations around the globe are declining due to being a target and non-target species by unsustainable fisheries. Join us in helping #SaveSharks by becoming a more conscious consumer and speaking up for sharks whenever you have the chance. 🦈 #SharkIDGeneral#TheGeneral#postpartum @oneoceansharks 💙
Very challenging visibility at the Maldives dive site "The Fish Tank" meant that you never knew what direction one of the dozens of rushing stingrays would appear from and you had to have your head on a swivel, looking for when and where.
I managed this quick grab as one rushed in from the left over the top of me.

Scavengers fighthing over a dead mackerel.
One of the first things I saw entering Namsenfjorden late at night one week ago, was a dead mackerel resting on the sea bed. I guess some recreational fishermen had thrown it off the quay.
Returning to the spot 50 minutes later, the scavengers was fighting over the dead fish. A blackmout catshark wast the last on the spot and the small shark did its best to shake away the hagfishes and a common whelk hanging on thight. You can see the slime from the hagfishes above the back of the catshark. I had to move shallow to do my decompression, but I am pretty sure the shark took it all.
Thanks to Vilhelm Skilhagen for showing me the spot. I'll be back!
