I am sure you have heard of the saying, “there’s plenty of fish in the sea.” Well, unfortunately that is not the case any more. Each year our oceans are losing more and more of our underwater friends. This is all due to overfishing, and is sure have a long-lasting impact on the future of our oceans and our everyday lives. Fortunately, we are now creating measures to restrict our fishing practices, but it may be a case of too little too late. Let’s hope not.
OverFishing with industrial trawlers is one of the ocean’s biggest threats.
Don’t Snorkel or Swim in Sharm el-Sheikh!
When we think of shark attacks we have images of the Great White from Jaws flashing in front of our eyes, or one of the many ‘youtube’ surfer shark attack videos. In recent times all kinds of stories and news reports have come out highlighting the unusual increase in shark attacks on humans. Take the most recent case in Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt where a 70 year old German woman was killed while snorkelling and four others mauled by what is believed to be the same shark the previous days while swimming. It is peak tourist season for scuba diving in Sharm el-Sheikh, boats are packed full, dive centres are fully booked and the region’s tourist board are desperate not to let the shark attacks dampen tourist income.
