CONGRATULATIONS on the Engagement!!! Congrats to our Co-founders @juansharks and @oceanramsey on getting engaged!!!🦈💍🌊♥️ proposed in the middle of a school of sharks, many of which they’ve known for over 10 years. These two sharks have been working hard around the planet to bring attention to the plight of sharks and the ocean. They both grew up in and both have dedicated their lives to and conservation and .
We and many other sharks wouldn’t be around without all their lifetime of hard work, dedication, and passion for sharks and the ocean. wedding ring even has a special inscription gratitude to one of the that first brought the together ten years ago 💍🦈 that helped lead to the establishment of @oneoceandiving and its many amazing divisions.
Happiest wishes and continued success in all areas of for “Mr. & Mrs Shark.” Oceans @waterinspired@xcelwetsuits wetsuit and bikini line now out at @xcelhaleiwa & @tcsurfshop Ring custom designed by Juan with @mauidiversjewelry

Sorry for being gone couple of days, took a small break, tank has took a small hit, one of the lines from the dosingpump deconnected and didn't dose 🤦🏻♂️ i lost my fluo green acro because of this.. other sps is still hanging in there so they'll recover 🙌🏻
So here's a evening shot with only 2 blue+ bulbs on 👌🏻
Goodnight everyone 😛
So I treated myself to a blue throat trigger last week and I got a fuzzy dwarf lionfish today #marinelife#saltwalter

Why do killer whales appear black and orange when first born?
When orcas are less than six months old, the white patches on their bodies appear orange or yellow in color. Scientists believe that this happens because when a killer whale is first born, its blubber layer is not very thick. Small blood vessels also show through their skin, giving it an orange tinge.
After approximately six months from birth and after the orca has already built up its blubber layer, the orange color fades into white. Within the calf's first year, the skin along the dorsal and fluke will begin to stiffen and the calf's markings will brighten, which is what we recognize in adult killer whales.

Oh, barnacles! This ‘HydroCAT’ instrument has been colonized by some small Acorn Barnacles and is in need of some scientific TLC. This specialized sensor package is used to collect water quality data including pH, temperature, conductivity (salinity), pressure (depth), dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll, and turbidity. Designed to be deployed for months at a time at a single location, devices like this one can develop accumulations of tiny marine organisms that attach and grow on exposed surfaces over time- a process known as ‘biofouling.’ Here we see barnacles encrusting the end of this HydroCAT, but a copper anti-biofouling wiper has kept the sensor face of the chlorophyll/turbidity probe clear. Larval barnacles are microscopic and motile, which allows them to be carried around by water currents while in this early stage. Once they are old enough and a suitable surface is available, the baby barnacles can attach themselves and develop into sessile, or immobile, adult barnacles. Unfortunately, sometimes the available surface they attach to is one of our instruments and they have to be removed periodically to keep the sensors in good condition and ensure the collection of quality data. Make sure to check out our post about barnacle larvae for more info about their lifecycle and visit our marine mooring page to learn more about our monitoring programs (link in bio)! •

So here I was at a section of the Sakumono coastline I learn is called Titanic Beach. I intended shooting a couple of long exposures and only realized I’d forgotten to bring along my shutter release cable when I started rummaging through my bag for it. Oh, what a disaster. Returning home for it was out of the question. I could have kicked myself several times over. So I had no option but to make the best of my situation. Completely unplanned and unintended subject, but one learns all the time.
#FunFact Divers can't determine the direction of sound, as beneath the surface, sound travels five times faster than it does in air. On land we just have a split second to determine the direction of a sound, but under water even a split second is not enough!
Isn’t this insane! What an interaction 😍😍
To get this close to these amazing animals, you may need a permit like @marine_life_kayaker has. 📜👈Human activities in the vicinity of marine life may impact the animals which could result in multiple things: from no observable effect, to modifying their behavior, to actual physical harm. 😬 To keep these animals safe, laws are in place that have severe penalties for those who violate them. 👮♀️💸 Before you approach marine life, learn the laws governing the interaction or you could end up in serious trouble. 🌊

Abandoned, lost and discarded nets, lines and traps are one of the biggest threats to our sea life. A staggering 640,000 tonnes of gear is left in our oceans each year. This gear traps, injures, mutilates and kills hundreds of thousands of whales, seals, turtles and birds annually.

During nesting season a female will return back to the same beach where she was born. She will find the right beach even after 30 years of absence!
