Marine Life Conservation Ao Nang Krabi

Marine Life Conservation Ao Nang Krabi successfully removed an abandoned fishing net with over 250 kg in weight and 100m in length.

We successfully removed the huge abandoned fishing net from a reef on Koh Haa at Ao Nang local islands today!
It was at least 250kg and 100 m long by 20m wide. The green cotton nets are very hard to remove from the corals they get strongly entangled into branching corals also because it just doesn’t rip. We use scissors to cut them out of the branching corals but it’s a monumental slow work. 6 divers working for 4h. So 24h work in total. Thank you very much to the Mu Koh Phi Phi Marine National Park staff which also came and helped us removing the net. Also big thanks to Ryan Gary Brent and Daryl.

Removing abandoned fishing net from a reef at the Local Islands Ao Nang marine national park.

Fishes can easily get protection on a reef inside Corals where the net isn’t reaching them however if the net gets entangled into the branching and whip corals of a reef and the fisherman isn’t able to pull it up again mostly they cut it off on the surface and abandon it due it’s cheaper to buy a new one.

Unfortunately then the reef is left with wide spread in Corals entangled abandoned fishing net. Fish Corals and other Marine life can post entangle into it and die of choking or starving to death. That’s why it’s so important to remove the abandon net. Poseidon Dive Center does a lot of Marine Life Conservation Ao Nang Krabi. In fact we are the only Dive Center who does Marine Life Conservation work in Ao Nang Krabi.

#WorldOceanDay

If we don’t start now our Actions will dictate our future, because each one of us can make a difference!
Together we can make a change!

Today is #WorldOceanDay Apart from depleting our oceans by over-fishing humans kill 100 Mil. Sharks per year, mostly for their fins.That’s around 3.6 sharks per second killed and only 0,94 born are born.We humans kill sharks more than 3 times faster than they can reproduce.We need the shark it’s a reef cleaner, it eats old and sick fish. If you would like to know more about sharks and our marine protection projects please visit http://poseidon-krabi.com/marine-life-protection-projects/This is a zebra shark (Stegostoma fasciatum) it is an Endangered species! Often mixed up with the Leopard Shark due to its Pattern. It’s called Zebra shark because as a juvenile it does have the black and white stripes of a zebra. This Zebra #Shark is 2,5m in length and is nocturnal laying on sandy patches and the seafloor during daytime. That u see one swimming during daytime is pure luck! The zebra shark is oviparous which means the female lays eggs. Taken by underwaterphotographer Daniel Sasse.

Removing an illegal Fishing Cage inside the Marine National Park

On a scuba dive at the Marine national Park Phi Phi Islands on  20th August 2015 we have found an illegal set Fishing Cage. A Lot of fish have been trapped inside and it was attached with a big rope to a Coral, either by scuba or surface supply divers! Fish cages are not allowed 3 nautical miles around the MN-Park Borders! Thanks a lot to Stefan Heinsen for the great Camera work and Anett for helping out! Also a big thank you goes to project abroad research divers!
