We have emphasized the importance on finding long term and sustainable solutions towards keeping our shark populations healthy. The endangered oceanic white tip shark population in Haiti is in serious danger of one day becoming extinct. They are caught and killed by local fishermen in the Nippes region on a regular basis- especially the juveniles! We are working tirelessly to protect these sharks and it starts with our population studies and assessments. So thankful for all the fishermen, youth, local villagers and other friends in Haiti who continuously provide us with photographs, videos and information about these sharks! Also, for those individuals and organizations in Haiti and elsewhere around the world who share our stories and support our mission of marine conservation! For us, it starts with relationships, partnerships and collaborations - the cornerstone of success! #oceanicwhitetip #savesharks #haiti #haitioceanproject #sharkresearch #sustainablegoals #partnerships #collaboration

These oceanics appeared after watching a small pod of short finned pilot whales go by. Some times one, sometimes 3, sometimes none. This time there were two. It’s nice when they hang around and check us out but most the time they seem to carry on following the pod. Waiting for regurgitated squid scraps.

I love adventure, exploration, the unknown, and a hunch. We managed to find this newly born oceanic white tip yesterday. They are born at around 65 cm +/-, and we estimated this at about 80 cm. It was super inquisitive and largely unsure of what it was meant to do around us. It would come up to my camera and just stop swimming presumably looking at its own reflection. We were so excited to see this little guy and it confirmed that I’m not so crazy!!! . . . . . . #underwaterphotography #uwpics #freedivingphotography #oceanicwhitetip #oceanicwhitetipshark #shark #uwphoto @fathomlesslife @discoverocean @scubapro @earthfocus @wonderful_places

The most exhilarating experience today. We went out looking for humpbacks but came across this instead... we did see the humpback, dolphins and turtles but this just topped it! 😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️ (sorry if my dodgy footage makes you sea sick 🤢) check out the video on unleished art Facebook page. #sharks #ilovesharks #pilotwhales #whales #oceanicwhitetip #snorkelling #thedeepblue #silvershark #borabora @tohorabb

"Why The Plastic Bottle?: Part 2/2" • Please visit my homepage for Part 1 • 🔵Maestro's Notes: Please read first before reacting. This is something very interesting which I too learned as I saw this amazing post from Shark Behaviourist and Conservationist, Founder of Shark Education, Dive Instructor, Speaker, Author and Underwater Cameraman, Steven Surina @steven_shark - I surely had among my best Oceanic whitetip shark interactions last week!!! The presence of mature males around the islands disturbes the sub-adults females and creates competition and frustration. Adding to that the more and more presence of boats and divers do not put the pressure down between the competitors. During that dive I used for education purposes a plastic bottle which recreates the noise of a fish being eaten. After the thousand of dives I had with these beauty I wasn't expecting such up close interactions like these ones. Believe it or not they were no food in the water even if the behaviour should prove the opposite. I had 26 witnesses underwater that could tell you it was only natural interactions and they experienced for good how this amazing pelagic shark respond here to sound stimulants. A gift from the ocean. • The oceanic whitetip is usually solitary and slow-moving, and tends to cruise near the top of the water column, covering vast stretches of empty water scanning for possible food sources. Until the 16th century, sharks were known to mariners as "sea dogs" and the oceanic whitetip, the most common ship-following shark, exhibits dog-like behaviour when its interest is piqued: when attracted to something that appears to be food, its movements become more avid and it approaches cautiously but stubbornly, retreating and maintaining a safe distance if driven off, but ready to rush in if the opportunity presents itself.

Its stocky body is most notable for its long, white-tipped, rounded fins. Recent studies show steeply declining populations because its large fins are highly valued as the chief ingredient of shark fin soup, and as with other shark species, the whitetip faces mounting fishing pressure throughout its range. - #Conservation #Education #Research #OneOceanGlobal #OceanicWhiteTip #BrothersIsland #RedSea #Egypt #SharkScience #MarineBiology #HelpSaveSharks #NoSharkCull #SharkFishing #SharkFinning #SharkFinSoup #SharkEducation

I surely had one of my best Oceanic whitetip shark interactions ever last week!!! The presence of mature males around the islands disturbed the sub-adults females and created competition and frustration. Adding to that there was more and more boats and divers adding more pressure.

The captivating Oceanic Whitetip (Carcharhinus longimanus), global numbers have suffered enormous declines over the last 40+ years as a result of unregulated or poorly controlled fishing practices. However in recent years legislation has improved and on January 30 this year, NOAA Fisheries published a final rule to list the oceanic whitetip shark as a threatened species under the United States Endangered Species Act. Absolutely loved diving with these sharks in the Bahamas with @epicdiving @ddcanabal #oceanicwhitetip #shark #sharkconservation #sharkphotography #underwaterphotography #canonphotography #scubadiving #sharkdiving #canon550d #ikelite #catisland #epicdiving #sphyrnas #bahamas #travel @sphyrnas @sharkweek @discoversharks @shark_specialist_group @sharkl0ve

Twilight shot of the surface circling pelagic Oceanic White tip The oceanic whitetip shark is found throughout the world in tropical and sub-tropical waters.It is a pelagic species, generally remaining offshore in the open ocean, on the outer continental shelf, or around oceanic islands in water depths greater than 600 feet. They live from the surface of the water to at least 498 feet deep. Oceanic whitetip sharks have a strong preference for the surface mixed layer in warm waters above 20°C, and are therefore a surface-dwelling shark. This shark is very endangered due to long lie fishing catching them mainly for their fins for Asian shark fin soup!

Everything we get is derived from the architectural designs of nature. The Oceanic Whitetip Shark is a perfect example as its evolved body shape and proportions represent maximised energy efficiency (ie. elongated and wide pectoral fins). Thus, many aeronautical technology could be modelled after it. Great shot by @reefhunter. #saveoursharks #saveouroceans #oceanicwhitetip

It’s peak season for sharks in the Red Sea! Oceanic whitetip sharks are patrolling under the liveaboard vessels in the marine park. We have seen the most of them at Little Brother, Red Sea - and yes, they came really close. Still hurts so much to see the hooks!❤️🦈 . . . . #sharksarefriends #shark #sharks #sharkstagram #scubagram #sharkphotography #underwaterphotography #uwphoto #redseadiving #longimanus #olympus #sharkdiving #ilovesharks #liveaboard #redsea #underwaternerdland #redseaegypt #sharkdivingislife #sharksareawesome #sharksarefriendsnotfood #olympusunderwater #underwaterwideangle #wideangle #inon #paditv #uwpics #tiburones #longimanus #carcharhinuslongimanus #oceanicwhitetip

Oceanic Whitetip feeding!! Its feeding methods include biting into groups of fish and swimming through schools of tuna with an open mouth. When feeding with other species, it becomes aggressive. Peter Benchley, author of Jaws, observed this shark swimming among pilot whales and eating their faces.

Large pregnant female ....The oceanic whitetip shark mates during the early summer in the north-western Atlantic and the south-western Indian Ocean, and females give birth to 1 to 15 live young approximately a year later after gestation period of 12 months. Reproduction is viviparous, with live young being born after being nourished by a placental yolk-sac that is attached to the uterine wall by umbilical cords . Sexual maturity is attained at an age of six to seven years for both sexes...

Drifting with scuba at 60 ft in 2000 ft of ocean. A awesome sensation as we never know what could swim up from the depths. We had many pelagic Oceanic Whiteip sharks swimming constantly around us . All were female and many pregnant like the one in this image. These sharks tend to prefer the deeper ocean waters. They tend to hunt in the water column around 490 ft (150 m) below the surface. They have been observed at waters as shallow as 120 ft (37 m) and along coastlines. However, they tend to only hunt these waters if they are near a continental shelf where they still have access to the deeper waters they prefer.

Black and White of this large female pelagic Carcharhinus longimanus.. Oceanic Whitetip Sharks are not diurnal which means they are active both day and night. They rely on ram breathing, which means they have to constantly swim to pump oxygen over their gills, so they never sleep. They are nicknamed the “Dark Knight of the Ocean” because they tend to hunt mostly at nighttime. Though they are primarily nocturnal, they will opportunistically feed during the day if an easy meal presents itself.

Silenthunterpty Bolton Mike Bolton Standing down this Oceanic Whitetip shark (Carcharhinus longimanus) ..One of the most beautiful sharks in our oceans. Very curious and inquisitive, but must to be respected when in the water with them. As an apex predator they can be very aggressive when giving the chance ! The species was described by Jacques Cousteau, the renowned oceanographer, as "the most dangerous of all sharks".But humans have been far more lethal against whitetips, hunting the shark above all for its fins, which are used to make shark fin soup. Its oil and meat are also sought after, while its hide is used to manufacture leather. @oneoceanresearch @nauticamhousings @silenthunterpty @maresjustaddwater @sharkweek @sony.a7r2 @ #savingoursharks #panamasharkphotographer #maresviper #oceanicwhitetip
