Another pilot fish post🐟 Pilot fish have been known to congregate around many sharks including oceanic white tips. They have a mutual relationship. The pilot fish eats parasites of the host, and in return the shark provides protection🦈 • • Pc~ @martin.strmiska #blueocean #saveourocean #moana #manō #respectthefin #whaleshark #oceanicwhitetip #blacktip #blueshark #makoshark #water #saltwater #staysalty #saltlyfe #saltlife #h2o #deepblue #oceanlife #marine #marinemammals #coral #coralreefs #reefshark #carcharadon #whiteshark #megaladon #marinebio #marinebiology

Living the dream 🦈😍 Whale sharks are the largest shark known to exist. They are ground sharks and they fall into a group of fish known as “filter feeders” along with basking sharks and the recently discovered mega mouth. • • • • • • Pc~ dm for creds❤️ #whaleshark #oceanicwhitetip #blacktip #blueshark #makoshark #water #saltwater #staysalty #saltlyfe #saltlife #h2o #deepblue #oceanlife #marine #marinemammals #coral #coralreefs #reefshark #carcharadon #whiteshark #megaladon #marinebio #marinebiology #marinebiologists #marina #elasmobrach #elasmo #elasmobranchii #elasmobranchology

In honor of National Shark Awareness Day, we are featuring the oceanic whitetip shark who we were able to get up close and personal with during the filming of Discovery’s Shark Week 2018 special, “Sharkwrecked.” ___ Recent studies have shown that populations of this vulnerable species are in decline owing to pressure from bycatch and the international market for its large prized fins. To learn more, check out this video (https://bit.ly/2lUNJy5) from Shark Week and Oceana and tune in to “Sharkwrecked” on July 26th @ 9PM EST to see the oceanic whitetip (and maybe even R/V ANGARI) in action! ___ Full “Sharkwrecked” special description available here: https://bit.ly/2N7O8ZE ___ · · · · · #4thesharks #sharkweek #sharkwrecked #sharkawarenessday #savethesharks #sharkseason #sharks #oceanicwhitetipshark #oceanicwhitetip #endangered #ilovesharks #savesharks #finfree #bethechange #turningthetide #sharkweektakeover #turningthetide #racingextinction #bethevoice #threatened #ocean #oceans #marine #nonprofit #expedition #shark #protect #seas

#Repost from @natgeo with @regram.app ... Photo by @BrianSkerry An Oceanic Whitetip Shark swims with a trio of pilotfish as an escort in the waters of The Bahamas. Once the most abundant large animal on Earth (large being defined as more than 100 pounds), the oceanic whitecap’s stocks have plummeted 98% and the species is now on the verge of extinction. They have been hunted largely for their fins used in shark fin soup. The story of the severe decline of these sharks is reminiscent of stories about animals like the passenger pigeon. Early explorers to North America, like Samuel de Champlain reported seeing "countless numbers" of passenger pigeons in 1605, but by the early 1900s, they were all gone.

Another wonderful, close encounter with an oceanic whitetip shark (Dive site: Little Brother, Egypt). 🦈 I’m in awe of sharks and more so because I know we need sharks to maintain healthy oceans and many are already endangered. PS. Did you know that shark meat can be for sale in your local supermarket under deceptive names? Read more here: www.visiondive.com/deceptive-names-for-shark-meat/ Do your part for the oceans and make an educated choice regarding what you buy.

Although having a hook removed probably doesn’t feel great, it allows the healing process to begin. Some hooks don’t rust out, thus the hook remains permanently, slowly creating a bigger wound or causing the body to unnaturally grow around a foreign object. #Repost @maestro320 with @get_repost ・・・ "Oceanic White Tip Hook Removal" - This beautiful hook removal was filmed on location in Cat Island in The Bahamas courtesy of Passionate Shark Conservationist, Underwater Photographer and Filmmaker, Leigh Cobb @blondesharkdiver - Hook removal from an endangered oceanic white tip. I hate seeing hooks in sharks mouths and try wherever possible to remove them. This lady was more than grateful as it was stuck on her upper jaw, after 4 slow passes where I could slowly twist it around, I finally managed the final twist ! This formerly widespread and abundant large oceanic shark is subject to fishing pressure virtually throughout its range. It is caught in large numbers as a bycatch in pelagic fisheries, with pelagic longlines, probably pelagic gillnets, handlines and occasionally pelagic and even bottom trawls. Catches, particularly in international waters, are inadequately monitored. Its large fins are highly prized in international trade although the carcass is often discarded. Fishery pressure is likely to persist if not increase in future. Outside of the areas detailed below, this species is under similar fishing pressure from multiple pelagic fisheries, there are no data to suggest that declines would and have not have also occurred in these areas, given there are similar fisheries throughout the range. As such, a precautionary global assessment of Vulnerable is considered appropriate for the oceanic whitetip. Efforts are underway to improve the collection of data from some regions and effective conservation and management of this species will require international agreements. - #Conservation #Education #Research #OceanOptimism🌊 #OneOceanGlobal🌏 @oneoceanglobal #OceanicWhiteTip #CatIsland #Bahamas #HelpSaveSharks #SavingJawsMovie #SavingJaws #Endangered #PredatorNotMonster @oceanramsey @juansharks @oneoceanhawaii @oneoceaninspired @oneoceansharks @oneoceaneducatio

Sharks are beautiful animals and if you're lucky enough to see lots of them, that means you're in a healthy ocean. You should be afraid if you are in the ocean and don't see sharks.

STORY TIME🦈 Yesterday me and my brother were walking down the beach when we saw this guy with a “fish” in his hands. As we got closer I recognized the tail fin to be one of a shark. Basically he let us get pictures then let me released it. It is safe to say that was the coolest experience I have ever had. She is a female juvenile Sharpnose and we named her Black Betty🦈🌊 DISCLAIMER: No sharks were harmed in this. She was only out for 5 minutes max and if you didn’t know sharks can be out of water for around 30-40 minutes without harm. She was safely returned to the water after and we made sure she swam away unharmed. • • • #sharktattoo #missionblue #banthefoam #blueocean #saveourocean #moana #manō #respectthefin #oceanicwhitetip #blacktip #blueshark #makoshark #water #saltwater #staysalty #saltlyfe #saltlife #h2o #deepblue #oceanlife #marine #marinemammals #coral #coralreefs #reefs

I have been very lucky to have worked down in Cat Island (Bahamas) and be in the water with these incredible inquisitive creatures (Carcharhinus longimanus) They have a reputation built on stories of killing survivors of plane crashes and ship wrecks. But what I see is a beautiful Shark with a curious mind that swims peacefully in a desert that will investigate anything that comes by. The Oceanic White tip was a Shark found in huge numbers across the globe and now has been fished to critically endangered levels and like most things in mother ocean they need help from all of us. I hope this picture can show them in a different light from a lot of the media they have been subjected too and open the eyes of all of us that call this planet home. 💙🦈 #peace #beautiful #ocean #oceanicwhitetip #sharks #scuba #diving #underwater #uwphotography #sonya7ii #itsbetterinthebahamas #picoftheday #masterliveaboards #nauticam #instatravel #instagood #freedom #conservation #protection

So stoked on seeing my first Oceanic White Tip this week in Kona. They are some of the rarest sharks in the world, because they generally live and hunt in pelagic waters they are extremely susceptible to being caught by commercial fisherman. Their numbers have been decimated over the years, and seeing one in person was a dream come true. Sadly this beautiful shark had hooks on each side of her mouth, one with a long line trailing behind it. On my last dive I tried to get close enough to cut some of the line, but she was a little too shy, hoping someone else has better luck and this shark lives a long healthy life. ✨ #oceanicwhitetip
