"Notes taken that morning. The head count.20 Scalloped Hammer head sharks- Endangered
16 Guitar Rays
1 Bow Mouth Guitar Ray
7 Sting Rays
7 Whole grey reef sharks on deck, 1 to 2 meters in length.
2 Whole guitar Rays, around 2 meters
I whole sting ray, 1 meter across
Several jaws, sculls and fins in the engine room and skin under a tarpaulin at the back of the boat.
Remember this is only one vessel and there are hundreds of boats like this, operating on a daily basis throughout Indonesia."
I thank all the divers who are helping Shark Savers at ADEX, I know there are more interested but just do not have the time... But please feel free to drop by the booth (C01), put down your pledge - Say "NO" to shark fin & bring back a few brochures, talk to more people & help spread the awareness. Let's contribute to the solution of this massive problem.
