Black Tip Reef Shark with Fishing Hook – 12 Sept 2017

Esto fue grabado el día Sábado 9 de Septiembre del 2017 en el Islote Mosquera cuando @sebastianperez_g realizaba una inmersión con tanque. Lamentablemente, no se pudo hacer nada para ayudar a este tiburón de punta negra que desesperadamente trataba de sacar la línea de pesca que tenía en su boca. Esto cada vez se vuelve más común y no se puede hacer lo suficiente sin tener los equipos adecuados solo ver, grabar y difundir pero buscamos el cambio y concientizar. Todos debemos entender que dependemos del océano y esto

This was recorded on Saturday 9th of September, 2017 at Islote Mosquera when @sebastianperez_g was doing an immersion with tank. Unfortunately, there was not much that could be done to help out this black tip reef Shark, as he was desperately trying to get rid of the fish line that was hook to his mouth. This behaviour is becoming more usual and it’s not much that could get done if there isn’t proper equipment handy, you could only watch the horror, record and post it in an aim to look for a radical change that is needed and the need to create awareness. We should all understand that we depend upon the ocean and that
