Sad news out of Fiji

I just heard the terrible news that iconic shark feeder Rusi (Rusiate-Balenagasau) from Beqa Adventure Divers has passed away.

Rusi 1960-2015 with his sharks.

I just got back from Fiji a few weeks ago and had the privilege to dive with Rusi and his beloved bull sharks. I can't say I knew him well, but his love for the sharks and his dedication to their conservation was obvious. I fondly remember watching him feed his sharks and it will not be the same without him.

My sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and all the guys and gals at Beqa Adventure Divers.

Rest in peace Rusi!
