Have you noticed that seafood today is more readily available than it was in the past..? From having aisles dedicated to it in grocery stores to having sections dedicated to them on menus in restaurants, the choices are plenty.
One way to make sure that the seafood you eat has been ethically caught and is sustainable to our oceans is by using the Seafood Watch app on your mobile phones. With this app you can find restaurants near you that serve sustainable seafood and even lists which ones are good choices and which fish to avoid at no cost to you~ @seafoodwatch
Your action to help protect our oceans today can be as simple as making sure you have this available on your phone for whenever you might need it!

🦈 Great white shark
We had a couple of rough, windy and rainy days in Dominica. But these conditions sometimes yield the best moments. What we originally though as just two sperm whales when we jumped in suddenly morphed into four as two juveniles appeared from the other side of the larger whales. Perhaps not the most earth shattering image but certainly a memorable moment for us as this big group of gentle giants slowly cruised by us. I love the unknown of the wilderness in the ocean!!! .

Whereas our previous post focused on the millions of fish that reside in one particular area of the Philippines, this fish prefers its own company. The funky patterned Napoleon wrasse is one of the world’s largest reef fishes growing up to two metres in length and weighing up to 180 kg. These species change in body form, colour and even sex during their life and can be spotted around the Indo-Pacific.

Mi tiburón favorito
distribuidas en las aguas poco profundas de los mares cálidos, es un verdadero fósil viviente, que ha subsistido a lo largo de las épocas geológicas para llegar hasta nosotros como olvidado por las leyes de la evolución. En efecto, el tiburón cerdo es un fósil viviente, ya que los paleontólogos han descubierto fósiles suyos cuyos esqueletos presentan todos los detalles estructurales y morfológicos, llegándose a la conclusión de que este pez singular ha existido ya bajo una forma absolutamente igual desde hace por lo menos 150 millones de años. .
Este tiburón, muy perezoso y de temperamento plácido, permanece generalmente en el fondo, donde se alimenta de diferentes especies de moluscos bivalvos y de crustáceos, a los que tritura con sus mandíbulas muy especializadas. El tiburón cerdo debe su nombre al repelente aspecto que ofrece. Sus orificios nasales forman unos salientes a ambos lados de la boca, armada con numerosos dientes. Los anteriores son muy puntiagudos y sirven para coger y sujetar a las presas, mientras que los numerosos dientes que cubren el fondo de la boca están aplastados en forma de muelas, que trituran y machacan los duros caparazones de sus víctimas. .
Las dos aletas dorsales están provistas, en su zona anterior, de una espina peligrosamente afilada, que está canaliculada, permitiendo la salida de un veneno muy tóxico producido por unas glándulas especiales. Es peligroso manipular un tiburón cerdo, a causa de la gravedad de las picaduras que pueda ocasionar. Debemos añadir que el tiburón cerdo es uno de los más lentos nadadores del mundo de los tiburones. #sharks#sharkie#saveourseas#conservation#oceanlover#oceanaddict#oceanviews#oceanvibes#discoverocean#oceanskeepers#saveocean#snorkeling#diving#plongee

I rarely share other people's imagery on my feed, but when I do it's always the work of @angierosecrans 😃 This shot is amazing ! We were supposed to be in the Bahamas together this past week with our friends @tulasendlesssummer , but I came down with the flu the day before we left . So I urged Angie to go anyway. The scene was set , and I knew this would be an amazing trip for her. A chance to get out of her comfort zone, and without me push herself and photography even farther. I loaded her up with camera gear and she was off! Finding a random tiger shark in the Bahamas is not out of the question , but def a special encounter! Although she shot this with her head hanging off the ladder of the boat and did not get fully in the water, I still have a lot of respect and am so proud of her for going for it! I mean , a 12ft tiger shark that's feeding is not to be taken lightly😆 It's interesting to hear her talk about sharks now, her whole perspective has shifted , the fear has lessoned , and has been replaced with respect, and a spiritual connection to these awesome creatures! I'm super stoked with all the images she brought back with her! So cool to see her growing as a photographer and adventurer 👍 I love you baby, keep it up😃
