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.
Our beautiful Lady is back in her natural Habitat! Hope you like her as much as we do! ❤ She really turned out gorgeous! ❤
Congratulations to our new CMAS*1Star Open Water Divers Jean-François, Rachel and Karl!! Here are some highlights of the course! Well done and always HappyBubbles! Always HappyBubbles!
