Maldives Underwater 2010
 

So…you spend loads of money on Scuba diving (PADI actually stands for Pay.Another. Dollar. In) , then you get to see a fantastic Manta Ray, close enough to touch…while snorkelling. Unforgettable. June 18, Rah Dhigga Island.

Kuda Bandos Tuesday 08 June

by on Jun.13, 2010, under Scuba

First dive in the Madlives 2010

MANTA POINT: Of course the dive guides always say there will be Manta Rays. This time there was! great result for dive number one of the year. Also saw an Eagle Ray and Green Hawksbill Turtle.  Spent the afternoon on Kuda Bandos, snorkelling and circumnavigating the whole island in under 15 minutes. Back on board Yasawa Princess by 16:05 – pronto.

Fish Farm?

by on Mar.29, 2010, under General

This is nuts: It takes around 6 tonnes of wild fish to reduce to 1 tonne of fishmeal, and then anything from 1.5 to 3 tonnes of meal to produce 1 tonne of farmed salmon. Comprende? we catch and kill 6 tonnes of wild fish to turn it in to 1 tonne of fishmeal…to then feed to other fish…to then kill and eat.

“Farmed fish are fed oils and meal made from other fish: close to a third of the catch from the world’s fisheries is used for non-food products, with the majority being converted into fishmeal and fish oil.” (read more)

Now, I like a salmon steak as much as anyone, but if this is the main way we have of producing ‘farmed’ fish, then something is sadly wrong don’t you think?
