The oceanic Whitetip shark lives far offshore in the open ocean. They were feared in WWI and WWII for their potential treat to sunken ships and and fallen planes. These sharks love their open space and can’t be tamed. #whitetipshark #oceanicwhitetip #openseas #watchout #loners #sharksarecool

Still one of my favourite shots of 2017. My encounter with this Oceanic Silvertip Shark was nothing short of thrilling. Sharks are portrayed as mindless monsters by the media and this couldn't be further from the truth. They are generally incredibly shy and cautious. To get a close-up photo of one is a pretty special event. #facetoface #encounter #passportocean #savesharks #oceanicwhitetip #sonyrx100v #sharky #sharkweek #oceanlove

Oceanic Whitetip Sharks (Carcharhinus longimanus) are pelagic predators that are typically found well offshore near the surface of tropical and subtropical waters. (NOAA Fisheries) One of the main threats that an #OceanicWhitetip faces is being bycatch caused by fishing practices. (NOAA Fisheries) When an animal is bycatch, it means that they were a non-target species caught in the process of trying to catch the target species. A Whitetips tendency to stay near the surface of the water in climates usually above 20 degrees Celsius puts them in a position where they are vulnerable to long line fishing, a practice frequently used by tuna fisheries. (NOAA Fisheries) The Tuna Regional Fisheries Management Organizations (RFMOs) took action in protecting the Oceanic White Tip species from being bycatch in their fisheries by adopting policies that prevent the holding, landing, or collection of any part of the animal. (Tolotti et al, 2015) This is a unique measure to protect the Oceanic Whitetips that is not used in the protection of any other pelagic shark species. (Tolotti et.al. 2015) It is important to recognize the different strategies that fisheries use to catch their target species because of the broad impact that it can have on marine ecosystems. The danger that many fishing practices pose to Oceanic Whitetips puts them in danger of being accidentally taken by fisheries that are not looking to harvest them. While commercially caught fish are much less expensive, it has a greater negative impact on the marine environments than seafood that is sustainably caught. Consumers play a large role in supporting safe or harmful fishing practices based on what they choose to buy when they purchase seafood. Help save our sharks by making conscious choices as a consumer! Post by @kberry122 Closeup photo by @oceanramsey

OCEANIC WHITETIP SHARK - Carcharhinus longimanus. Oceanics are another species of pelagic sharks. They are on top of the food chain in most places they live and it's a sharks you have to be mindful of when you're around them. Being offshore predators makes them very curious and they're not shy to come close and investigate what you are in the water! Before getting in the water with them or other pelagic sharks make sure you know how to behave in the water to avoid a great encounter turning into a dangerous situation! Learn more about them tomorrow! #oceanicwhitetipshark #oceanicwhitetip #whitetip #shark #oceanic #pilotfish #sharkdiving #redsea #egypt #longimanus #offshore #pelagic #underwaterphotography #canon #hugyfot #pelagicinc #photography #education #conservation #travel

Like any ruler, the Oceanic Whitetip is often attended by an entourage of lesser creatures. Boldly barred Pilotfishes (Naucrates ductor) benefit only themselves by scavenging meal scraps and deriving protection by associating with their fearsome host.

Oceanic white-tip shark 🦈 These sharks are probably responsible for more human fatalities than any other shark species. So rad to share the water with a few today!

Oceanic whitetip sharks (Carcharhinus longimanus) are listed as vulnerable globally on the IUCN redlist of threatened species and are also assessed as critically endangered in the Northwest and Western Central Atlantic Ocean. They are found worldwide in tropical and subtropical waters, between 30ï¹¾N to 35ï¹¾N, to depths of 200 meters. This species matures at 4 or 5 years of age and has 1-15 pups after a 10-12 gestation. Oceanic whitetips were formally abundant but populations in most places have decreased drastically in recent years. This species is taken in directed longline fisheries and as bycatch in tuna fisheries. Their large fins are highly prized in the global shark fin trade. There are no species-specific protections currently in place for this species, even though it is critically endangered in parts of its range. The only conservation measures that may aid this species are a multi-species pelagic shark quota in U.S. Atlantic Waters and a 1995 listing as a highly migratory species by the UN.

Short clip of a epic mobile pilot fish baitball in the Red Sea!

my first time seeing oceanic white-tip shark who could attack people. I captured the videos noticing a fishline hanging on one poor oceanic white-tip. Feel sad about that. #redsea #Egypt #liveaboard #oceanicwhitetip #oceanicwhitetipshark #sharkpreservation

Best wishes to all of you that celebrate X'Mas 🎄tonight/tomorrow... Tonight I feel like sharing photos of some of my favourite sharks. ( Whaleshark, Blue, Silky, Oceanicwhitetip, hammerhead) Also a good moment to thank all those organisations that are working day and night to protect the shark species. Particularly the scientists and conservationists that have accepted to help on my upcoming publication Call of the Blue. In no particular order Mauricio Hoyos , Rachel Graham, Lauren Smith, Michelle Heupel, Yannis Papastamariou, Mikki McComb-Kobza, Jim Hancock, Simon Pierce, Deni Ramirez-Macias, @pauldegelder , Kevin Huang, ReginaDomingo @regisunday and StefanieBrendl.

This why we dive. It doesn't have to be deep! These oceanic white tip sharks are often spotted near the surface on divesites in the south of the Egyptian Red Sea. 📷@sofietees P #scubaprofessional #scubafundamental #scubadiving #scuba #scubaconfidential #underwaterphotography #divingandsnorkelingguide #diving #instadive #instatravel #travelgram #travelwriting #longimanus #oceanicwhitetip #elphinestone #egypt #egypttravel #redsea #liveaboarddiving

We weren't on a specifically shark centred trip, so it was lovely to have such a great Longimanus encounter at Elphinstone on my most recent photo workshop. Thanks to Robby Frank our great guide from Marsa Shagra Red Sea Dive Safari for facilitating a great experience.

I am still in Hawaii but sharing some older photos of one of my happiest days in the water. It started with free diving with at least 60 plus pilot whales followed by these 2 gorgeous Ocean Whitetips. We had incredible conditions and utterly flat seas, it was a dream come true to be in the water with them. Because of their reputation I was the only one in the water with them despite being surrounded by 4/5 boats full of divers, no one else was interested in taking the risk. I actually had trouble getting fullbody shots since they are not shy and were circling and passing me close enough to touch. I was utterly enchanted and elated. I managed to both savor the moment and get at least a few good pix unfortunately I did have a number of people yelling at me to get out of the water. They are gorgeous gorgeous creatures and sadly becoming very rare. Human beings are killing 300 million sharks a year 😡 #savesharks #oceanicwhitetip #oceanicwhitetipshark #whitetipshark #sharks #ocean #scubadiving #underwaterphotography #oceanporn #natureporn #sharkporn #takenbytheseablog #takenbythesea #roatan #honduras #shark

via @brianskerry ・・・ Photo by @BrianSkerry. An Oceanic Whitetip Shark and Marine Biologist swim in the clear, open waters of the Bahamas. This species of shark was once the ‘most abundant large animal on Earth,’ but today is on the verge of extinction. In the years between 1995 and 2010 alone, their numbers declined 93% due to anthropogenic hunting of their fins. These fins are often eaten by humans in the form of shark fin soup. The Bahamas remain one of the few places on earth where these animals can still be found. @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #oceanicwhitetip #travelphoto #travel #photographer #underwaterphotography #bahamas #photography #natgeo #nationalgeographic #sharks #savesharks #nature #underwater #caribbean #oceanic #whitetip #photooftheday #conservation #preservation #onassignment #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikonlove

It's been a while since I've painted any sharkies! * The oceanic whitetip shark is "only" listed as vulnerable to extinction, but is at high risk of being elevated to endangered in the near future. * The populations of whitetips are rapidly in decline due to fishing and the shark fin industry, due to their large fins. * How can you help? Don't eat shark fin soup. Don't consume shark meat (yes, there are even restaurants here in San Diego that serve it). Don't take shark cartilage supplements. * Not only are these products devastating the environment, they're also unhealthy for us. Sharks contain high levels of mercury and other neurotoxins, which are dangerous for us. * Shark fins belong on sharks! ***** 'Vanishing' Acrylic on Canvas Board 8x10"
