There is a Hawiian saying “pua ka wiliwili nanahu ka mano” or “when the wiliwili tree flowers, the shark bites”. Hype around #sharktober has sparked interest whether October really is a month of increased shark activity around the Hawaiian Islands. Extensive tagging and research on the migration patterns of #TigerSharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) by the University of Hawaii has been underway since the late 1990s. Using acoustic telemetry it shows, that although tiger sharks are circumglobal they also frequent large home ranges that can be efficiently navigated between from prime feeding areas to important breeding grounds (Holland et al Marine Biology 1999). Towards the end of fall, almost a quarter of the sharks tagged migrate from the northwest to the main Hawaiian Island, coinciding with female tiger sharks giving birth to pups in September/October (Whitney & Crow 2006). As with most species, birthing requires a significant amount of energy that needs to be replenished, combine this with a higher concentration of animals in one area and this is one theory why shark activity increases inshore during October. Unfortunately, the reason we are most aware of the increase in activity is due to the adverse encounters with people that #sharktober sees. Keeping in mind it is statistically extremely rare and the fact that sharks make mistakes much less often than people do, records going back to 1980 from Hawaii’s Department of Land and Natural Resources show the month of October historically has the highest rate of unprovoked, non-fatal encounters (Division of Aquatic Resources, DNLR 2016). 🌺 To avoid a negative shark interaction it is best to respect this important time of year for Hawaii’s sharks and give them the space they need to refuel and replenish their energy stores. Avoid murky waters, harbour entrances, areas near stream mouths (especially after rain), channels or steep drop offs where prey items frequent. Sharks are being killed at a rate of 100 million every year and need all the help they can get. #ItsTheirOcean🦈💙 To follow the movements of Tiger Shark Tracking Project around Hawaii head to pacioos.hawaii.edu Post by @saltybluegypsy

Spending time at #sea and especially waking up on a boat to enjoy days surrounded by #GreatWhiteSharks might sound scary for some but for me it’s an oasis and I relish the time out of cell range and how it forces me to disconnect and just appreciate the raw beauty and #perfection of #nature in this remote location. Living on a large vessel is so convenient, I wake up to the sound of the crew yelling #shark #shark and not in a scary, terrifying, jaws way but in a way that gets everyone excited to look out and see who it is. Sipping @guayaki tea in the sun and watching the sharks while in the water or through the clear cobalt blue from above. This place is amazing and I’m grateful to have spent so much time, the sharks here have taught me so much and helped shape me to be the person I am today, still growing, but thanks to them I have been able to accomplish a lot on their behalf. #sharkinspired #waterinspired #oceaninspired #oneocean #oneplanet #onechance #helpsavesharks before they go extinct #finbannow take a stand again #sharkfinning and #sharkfishing speak up for sharks and go #sharkdiving and #seathetruth for yourself #beautifuldestinations #travelforacause 2 spots left on the last trip of the season October 30th contact @oneoceandiving office line. @oneoceanresearch @oneoceanconservation @oneoceandesigns @oneoceanglobal @oneoceaneducation @oneoceaninspired @waterinspired PHOTO BY #dajuanandonly @juansharks Leggings are the #ladyshark by @oneoceandesigns #oneoceandesign.com 🦈💃🏼

Today, October 17th 2017, marks the 10th death anniversary of Taku. May he rest in peace.
-
Born to Katina, sired by Tilikum and younger brother of the ‘Baby Shamu’ Kalina, Taku was a prime example of how close orca in the wild are to their mothers. He was very close to Katina and remained with her for 13 years, even as younger siblings came and went.
-
Becoming one of the largest maturing males in SeaWorld, Taku was also considered one of the gentlest. Despite his size, Taku was regularly used for water-works.
-
Taku mated with the orca Takara when she was moved to Orlando and the young male Trua was born. Soon after Taku mated with his own mother Katina, producing SeaWorld’s first inbred calf, Nalani. Taku spent most of his time with his mother and siblings and had only periodic access to other females. This restricted social access to the other orca, as well as the lack of anything resembling a natural social group, possibly influenced the inbreeding.
-
After this happened, Taku was separated from his mother in early 2007 and was sent to SeaWorld San Antonio, where he lived for less than a year. While logging at the surface, a behaviour that likely arose from boredom, Taku was thought to have been bitten by a mosquito that transferred a virus to him that the orca immune system is naive to. This claimed his life, meaning that Katina would never see her son again.

Are you one of them? The average American consumes more than 4 pounds of #shrimp every year (NMFS 2014). @oceana is calling on the Federal Government to implement a "simple solution" to ensure domestic, wild-caught shrimp are more sustainably caught in their recent report "TEDs for All Trawls". The #problem? The U.S Shrimp Trawl Fishery generates $680 million annually in revenue out of the Gulf of Mexico from shrimp, but loses 62% of their hauls to by-catch totalling an estimated 242 million pounds of wasted sea life (NMFS 'National Bycatch Report' 2016). #By-catch is the non-targeted fishery species which in this case includes a government estimate of 50,000 #turtles each year, plus #sharks, #skates, #rays, and larger #fish. The #solution? TEDs, Turtle Excluder Device, made of metal grates that are positioned inside the openings of shrimp nets to allow turtles to escape, preventing them from drowning and shrimp to slip through into the sack at the end. #TEDs are 97% effective if used correctly and are currently in place with many fishermen in the Southeast since the 1980s but 2,400 boats are still allowed to operate in the region without them (Carr et al. Oceana 2016). @oceana needs YOUR help in enforcing TEDs as a requirement in all U.S domestic shrimp trawl fishery vessels to reduce by-catch and protect marine life. You can view the report from May 2016 on their website for more information and download @seafoodwatch app (available for iPhone & Andriod) to ensure your seafood choices are sustainable !! Mahalo for doing your part and joining the movement towards #savingourseas. Post by @saltybluegypsy

The cookiecutter shark (Isistius brasiliensis) is very small, but definitely knows how to leave its mark in the ocean.  While it is very small, it can leave crater like bites or scars on its prey due to the morphology of its tooth and jaw (Wetherbee, Bradley M. et al 2004). This will latch onto its prey with the teeth in the upper jaw and then slowly use its lower jaw to cut out the section of flesh that it is going to eat, much like a cookie cutter.  This little shark that can grow to be only about 50 cm long feeds upon a variety of marine vertebrates including spinner dolphins, killer whales, and even great white sharks (Oceana). It is a parasite.
The that are left on the cetaceans can actually be of use when identifying them through photo identification.  These scars will be little circles or ovals that are smooth in texture and slightly lighter in color of the area of the body it is located in.  Keep in mind, one cetacean could have 4 scars from different sharks plus any other scars it may have.  There was one that was spotted in New Zealand named “Moby” that had a fresh bite in 2007.  In 2011, he was identified for the fourth time because of his scar that was left behind from the scar Dwyer, Sarah L. et al 2011). Just like “Moby”, we are able to identify various sharks that we see each day in the water with photo identification.  Those scars become to that individual.  These scars we see aren't necessarily from cookiecutter sharks, but instead we might see some that have been done by man or competitive interactions with other sharks.

My inspiration as an aspiring marine biologist and shark research/conservation junkie.

The only time I EVER swim @ a shark with a knife...Trying to cut a rope off #roxythetigershark 😥 This poor beautiful #tigershark has had her jaw broken, been wrapped in a net, satellite and acoustically tagged, and bore many deep scars over the years, now she has a rope within a wire leader stuck in her throat 💔 I attempted to cut the rope but it kept pulling on the line causing her obvious pain yet she kept coming back and I only wonder if she wanted us to try but couldn't handle the pain. We always carry knives on board because we try to cut fishing line off sharks and unfortunately have to do it quite often but we can only get so much. This fishing rig is probably specifically to catch a shark because no other fishery I know would need that thick of wire or a rope.
Hopefully she will be able to regurgitate the hook if it's not lodged 😓 It just bums me out that someone I've known for so long has been physically hurt and I wasn't able to cut it this time. Hoping to have her come by again soon, will let you know next time we see her.

I came across this picture I took almost 10 years ago. It is getting harder and harder to find such fish density around the oceans 😢.When 1 billion people depend on the sea for livelihood, it is not hard to imagine what would end up happening. We desperately need more clean and proper (free of antibiotics and chemicals) fish farming. Lets stop buying wild fish and chose good sustainable clean farmed fish. It reminds me our days of mad-cow disease, when we didn't know what we were eating... I guess standards have improved (although not the C02 beef footprint !! -buy lamb instead) , so .. for sure we can do the same with fish farming.
