SHARK FINNING AT SEA CONTINUES

Author: Wildlife Extra News
Law loophole means shark finning at sea continues!

Unscrupulous shark-finners now bring ashore shark fins attached to their skeleton in order to get around the ban on finning at sea that most countries have now adopted, which states the fins of the shark must be ‘naturally attached’ to the body. This move to strip it of its bulky flesh and just leave it flimsily attached to its spinal cord means that, like before, the finners can still fill their boats with hundreds of fins.

This new tactic was discovered by the Costa Rican coast guard and a Purple Notice was issued through Interpol to warn 190 member countries of this move. The Purple Notice was issued under the umbrella of INTERPOL’s Project Scale, a global initiative to detect, suppress and combat fisheries crime which is estimated to cost the global economy up to USD 23 billion each year and is linked to other forms of organized and transnational crime including corruption, money laundering, document fraud, and human and drug trafficking.

Join Magnus Lundgren from Exposure Expeditions when a small group of enthuisastic photographers is planned to explore the blue water at sea mounts, off shore banks and along the Santa Maria coastline. A trip very carefully planned regarding operator, location and time.

Our main topic will be a huge underwater seamount and the stunning blue sharks, and maybe a mako, as well as the remote island Formigas. What a graceful creature and being able to witness the sharks in it's own environment is such a powerful expirience.This weather permitting of course. We will also look for schooling mobula rays and barracudas over the more local sea mounts, triggerfish aggregations, numerous groupers of great siz, loggerhead turtles and to meet Santa Maria's very rich fish life. From a geological perspective we can explore cave formations and an underwater bank consisting of columnar hexagonal basalt formations great for wide angle photography as well.

A great adventure.

NORTHERN RIGHT WHALE SAVED!

Author: Patrik Karlsson

← Back to latest news

Whale caught in fishing gear and got released!
 
Summer 20Northern right whale13. Local fishermen, Captain "Pat Foster" and Mate "Adrian Colaprete", who run a charter fishing boat based out of Virginia Beach, USA, rescue endangered and extremely rare Northern Right whale that had become entangled in some rope or fishing gear.
 
They were about 50 miles off the coast helping a team of scientists conduct research studies offshore. Pat spotted a whale swimming irregularly in the distance and decided to have a closer look. The team identified the whale as an endangered species of the northern right whale and noted the whale was in serious danger.
 
The whale was tangled in some sort of fishing ropes or trap line and was slowly dragging the fishing gear behind it.
Pat and Adrian decided they would have to try and assess the situation a little further and find out if they could do something to help the whale. After identifying the whale's movement pattern the team decided Adrian would get in the water with the whale and take a closer look. When Adrian swam up to the whale he sensed the whale was welcoming his help and he made the decision to cut the rope tangling the whale to the line of fishing gear. After the rope was cut the tangled fishing gear sank to the bottom of the ocean and the whale swam away free.

Ikelite UW housing GH-3

 

← Back to latest news

Other housings simply waterproof your camera. An Ikelite Smart Housing improves your photos.
TTL or "Through-The-Lens" flash metering means the camera controls flash duration to properly expose an image. Only Ikelite Smart Housings are able to tell your camera that a TTL external flash is attached, allowing the camera to adjust exposure more accurately.
 
If proper exposure is so important... Shouldn't it be easier to adjust your strobe settings?
With a Smart Housing, it is. Exposure adjustments directly through the back of the housing put the perfect shot within reach every time. Tweak your exposure or take total control without taking your hand off of your housing.
 
Thoughtfully designed for ergonomic handling.
Controls are customized to put all important camera functions within comfortable reach. Unlike other  housings, we bring video record start/stop and AF lock out to the  side of the housing for quick access using your thumb without taking a hand off of the handles.
 
Quality in engineering, manufacturing and service.
Like every Ikelite product, the 6860.03 housing for the Panasonic Lumix GH3 is designed, built and tested in the USA. We use locally sourced, top-grade materials from trusted vendors we've been working with for decades. Our housings are built by hand and individually tested for fit, function and waterproof integrity. The average assembly technician is a certified scuba diver and has over 16 years of experience building Ikelite products. We back our products with over 50 years of experience and service within the dive industry.
