Coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae) - 50 Seconds

You often read about Coelacanth (Latimeria chalumnae) the stuff of deep sea legends. Today with ROV technology theses critters are no longer the oceanic legends they once were.

Here's 50 seconds of deep sea bliss with the Coelacanth for your review:

Fiji - Evolving Shark Tourism 2

Object lessons in shark tourism media are what the folks at Beqa Adventure Divers seem to be about these days - as they continue with a brilliant 2009 shark year rolling out conservation initiatives for Fiji's sharks, pro shark PSA's, and now a short series for local television on sharks.

Once again we tip our hats to an operator who, working in third world conditions, has managed to promote sustainable shark diving and conservation locally, regionally and internationally.

Note: This blog, Shark Divers and Shark Divers have no formal affiliation with the operators in Fiji, the owners, or staff. We do not book their shark tours and receive no compensation from them in any form as has been "discussed" by members of the dive community.

When we see something that works within the shark diving industry, we blog about it.
