oneoceandiving Riley Elliott @rileysharks leaves for NZ tomorrow but has learnt a lot about our shark species in his two weeks here. This well known female Galapagos "iLean" put his behavioural knowledge to the test, challenging Riley for dominant position. She commonly forces all the males from the site by swimming over the top of them or tail slapping. Jaw gaping and pectoral fin drops are also signs to look out for as warnings of dominance. Riley employs the number one rule of shark diving and that's eye contact. In doing so he shows ilene his presence in her area, enabling coexistence. @oneoceandiving @juansharks @oceanicramsey @korigarza @gopro @freestyle_watches @honokea @sharks @sharksdaily #oneoceandiving

samueldhall Finding spots to surf on the NSW north coast can be a daunting prospect at the moment with the growing level of ocean activity. #saveoursharks 8h

hollyematheson Last night I saw the Melbourne preview of "Racing Extinction" a very important, powerful, incredibly heartbreaking and visually spectacular doco by the makers of "The Cove". If you care about the creatures that inhabit our planet you MUST see this!

kvs_images A graceful Sandbar shark curves his way through the deep. By swinging their head back and forth as they swim through the water, sharks pick up electrical signals given off by other moving animals, signaling the location of potential prey items. Photo taken with @nikonusa + @aquatech_imagingsolutions on a @oneoceandiving research dive with @juansharks and @oceanicramsey. @ocean @saveourseasfoundation @nature_org @sharksdaily @oceana #shark#sharks#saveourseas#saveoursharks#itstheirocean#stopthecull#preservation#conservation#ocean#MadeofOcean#sea#underwater#dive#diving#aquatech#nikonnofilter#hawaii#Oahu#northshore#shoots#aloha 10h

_save_our_sharks_ Shark finning should be put to an end instantly.Sharks are misjudged animals, they are not the man eaters people tend to think they are, they are much more gentle.The chances of getting attacked by a shark are very low and attacks occur just because a shark mistakes humans for its prey as humans can seem similar to seals,turtles and fish in water. #saveoursharks #saynotofinning #banfinning #stopfinning #sos #shark #ocean #disgusting 11h
  •   aharmer1 In California the entire thresher shark is eaten. Should they throw the fins away and keep the shark? 11h

Normal One Ocean Diving
oneoceandiving New Zealand shark researcher Riley Elliott has been collaborating with @oneoceandiving for a few years now. His NZ work is on Blue sharks, one of the most commonly finned sharks in the world. Over 20 million of these sharks a year are removed from the ocean ecosystem. Riley's studies tag and track blue sharks to identify their critical habitats and also quantify their ecosystem role that may be threatened from over exploitation. Follow his work @rileysharks and see how he has gone this year with us in Hawaii. @oneoceandiving @juansharks @oceanicramsey @korigarza @gopro @freestyle_watches @honokea @sharks @sharksdaily #oneoceandiving

mwitkus Sharks give me infinite peace, calm, perspective and strength. When ever I am in doubt and don't know what to believe or trust, I know I can always believe in my love of sharks #sharklover #saveoursharks 1d
