What Project Aware do Protecting Sharks Sharks help maintain the health of ocean ecosystems, including seagrass beds and coral reefs but most shark species are threatened by extinction. An healthy ocean undoubtedly depends on sharks. They may rule the ocean, but sharks are an incredibly vulnerable species. Because they grow slowly and produce few , sharks are exceptionally susceptible to overexploitation. Further, a healthy and abundant ocean and the communities that rely on it depend on healthy shark populations. Overfishing is driving sharks to the brink of extinction - with many populations down by 80 percent. Tens of millions are killed each year for their meat, fins, liver, and other products, as many fisheries are unregulated and catches are significantly under-reported. Bycatch – catching sharks incidentally and indiscriminately while fishing for other commercial species – poses a significant threat to sharks. At the same time, new markets for shark and ray products are blurring the line between targeted and accidental catches. Finning – the removal of shark fins and discard of the shark’s body at sea - is often associated with shark overfishing, as keeping only the fins aboard the vessel allows fishermen to kill many more sharks than if they were required to bring back the entire animal.

It's been a stunning week for diving here in the Bay of Pollença so far and yesterday was no exception. While out in the Bay, testing our new scooters, we captured this beautiful school of Barracudas forming right in front of us. As Natural World photographer, Chris Pope, says: "Nature has a power like no other to leave you breathless if not speechless." and this was certainly one of those moments. 😍 🎥 credit: Chris Gerhart underwaterphotography nature naturephotography naturefilm underwatervideo tusa adventure underwaterscooter barracudas ocean scubadiving freediving sealife marinelife mallorca pollença thetramuntanaway

A school of Blue Tang (Acanthurus coeruleus) They inhabit coral reefs, inshore grassy or rocky areas, down to 40m/131ft. They can be solitary, but more often found in large aggregations grazing on algae. Mainly diurnal. The sharp spines on both sides of the base tail are used as defensive weapons by slashing their tails from side to side. It aggregates with other surgeonfishes (A. bahianus and A. chirurgus) to raid algae patches guarded by damselfishes.

Thresher Sharks in the blue!🦈💕My choice for today’s draw30animals, prompt no.7 Deep Sea. I am more than averagely obsessed with sharks and the thresher shark is my absolute favorite. It is incredibly graceful with its long swooped tail and moves like a torpedo through the water😊! Their tails are as long as the rest of it’s body and they use it as a whip to lash out at their pray Incredibly fast, extremely successful hunters and amazingly beautiful, I love them ❤️ draw30animals threshershark sharks ilovesharks sharkconservation sharktrust marineanimals sharkillustration marinelifeillustration aquatic illustratorsoninstagram freelanceillustration bluewater oceanartist scubadiving marineconservation
