Congratulations to Hanno our newly certified CMAS*1Star open Water Diver! He has passed it with flying colors! All the best and always HappyBubbles for your future dives!
As you can see a Turtle is a very sustainable eater! It only takes one or two bites out of a Coral because it does know that it will grow back and provide her with more food, instead of eating all at once and killing the Coral and obviously her food source! If only humans would be that clever!
20-21st May underwater CleanUp Days
20th-21st May we had an underwater Cleanup Day with Projects Abroad and The Mayor of Krabi. Here is a small peak.
1 day wasn’t enough to remove all of it so we went out again today with 17 divers to clean up the rest! Big Thanks to the Marine National Park of Phi Phi Islands by coming out and supporting us with divers and speedboat! Also a big thanks goes to Project Abroad with their staff and Volunteers! And last but not least our staff and customers who volunteered! The damage was imense at the reef but at least we could rescue some fish crabs shrimps and seastars out of the Net! Please follow proper Fishing laws!
I’m very happy that i was able to shoot some pretty good footage of a Giant Triggerfish letting me come very close to watch its parenting behavior. After spawning, both the male and female participate in caring for the fertilized eggs (biparental egg care). A female triggerfish stays near the spawning ground, around 5 meters off the bottom, and guards the eggs within her territory against intruders. Besides guarding, females will roll, fan, and blow water on eggs to provide oxygen to the embryo, thereby inducing hatching. This behavior of female triggerfish is called ‘tending,’ and males rarely perform this behavior.
Congratulations to our newly certified CMAS1*Star Divers Janin and Hendrik! We wish you lots of HappyBubbles and hope to see you soon again! We have seen lots of things in 5 dives at the local Islands! Seahorse Bamboo Shark, Razor Fish, Nudibranchs, Flatworm and not to forget the requested green Turtle! 😉
