Richard was diving with some old friends James & Ev recently & the dive turned into a mass attack on a very tricky & sadly dstructive net but we are delighted to say we got it all 🙂
The illegally discarded net was snagged on the reef at one of our favourite Blacktip Reef Shark (Carcharhinus melanopterus) dive sites.
Multiple juvenile sharks were entangled & needlessly perrished but we did manage to release some live marine life.
The current was running which made the removal exhausting but fortunately our divers (all instructors) joined in so we finally managed to bring it all up.
Divers please carry a knife & remove marine debris whenever you can but remember please take care and stay with your buddy as entanglement can be a real safety issue!
Big thanks to Nunuk James Matthews & Evelyn V Matthews for their help 🙂
