A New Discovery In The Great Barrier Reef!

The largest coral reef ecosystem on earth, the Great Barrier Reef, has revealed a spectacular and previously unknown jewel. The sapphire-hued blue hole was discovered by marine biologist and underwater photographer, Johnny Gaskell.

Blue holes are underwater sinkholes. They are formed when carbonate bedrock drops deeper than the surrounding seafloor. Blue holes are characterised by their depth in relation to the surrounding limestone or coral reef bedrock and their spectacular deep blue tone. Notable blue holes are the Dragon Hole (a whopping 300m deep) and the 300m wide Great Blue Hole of Belize.

Gaskell, a resident of the Whitsunday’s, described his find on his Instagram account, “After spotting this deep blue hole on Google Maps we decided to head far offshore, out further than our normal Reef trips to see what dwelled within.” And what a find it was! At depths of 15-18m the divers discovered pristine colonies of giant birdsnest and unusually long Staghorn corals.

55 Arrests Related To Illegal Fishing!

Hot on the heels after the arrest of 20 illegal Chinese crew in Ecuador, 35 suspects have been arrested in the Chinese province of Guangdong.
g
These arrests are welcome news for those fighting to put a stop to illegal shark-finners. However, these events over the last two months, have highlighted the heavy toll illegal fishing has on our oceans’ dwindling shark populations.

Ecuador jails 20 Chinese vessel crew
Dive with hammerhead sharks in the GalapagosIn mid August, marine ecologist Pelayo Salinas (who works with the Charles Darwin Foundation), was returning from a 12-day research mission on a Galápagos National Park patrol ship.

The ship’s captain saw another vessel on the radar in the restricted waters of the marine reserve. The crew and an Ecuadorian Navy officer initially radioed the vessel to ask why they were in the park. When there was no response after several attempts, they informed them that they are required by law to respond. The radio remained silent… Salinas and three crew members took chase in a 13 foot (4m) inflatable boat. They were able to identify the vessel as Chinese, and strongly suspected it was involved in illegal fishing. Unable to keep up with the 300 foot vessel in their small boat they returned to park headquarters to report the sighting.

Is Macro Major?

What type of diver are you? Is ‘size doesn’t matter’ your style or ‘variety is the spice of life’ your preference? At Dive The World we have them all covered for you.

Macro Diving
If ‘size doesn’t matter’ then macro is major for you. Talking about size, macro is an adjective to describe large scale, however in diving it refers to diving with tiny creatures. The term macro diving may have stemmed from capturing images of these incredibly beautiful and unusual minuscule marine animals. Macro photography is where the subject is rendered at or greater than 1:1 on the sensor. When the image is printed, the subject appears much larger than it does in real life. The majority of marco divers will have their digital cameras at hand. Experienced dive masters will know the dive sites and will be able to lead you directly to the critters ‘homes’. Here you can wait patiently to get that perfect shot.

Where are the best locations for you to experience macro?
Macro diving offers you a myriad of dive sites to explore. Generally these dive sites are in shallower areas that reduce the dangers posed by large reef predators. Here the juveniles can grow into adults and other creatures dominate the food chain. The sea conditions are usually calm and are protected from strong currents and swells. Tiny critters’ abodes may be the pillings of super structures such as the resort oil rig off Mabul Island, the shallow flats off Indonesia’s Lembeh Strait or Belize’s impressive reef and 3 atolls.
