Terminal tackle fail at its worst. Bottom rig with a 4oz sinker and 2 circle hooks. Fought whatever it was for 20 minutes lol. Wrapped around the dock piling and was splashing pretty heavy. It was gone in less than a second 😢
Palm trees and ocean breeze 🌴🌺- that's how we spent this Sunday. This was such a fast weekend, but at least next week is a short work week. We are doing our first LONG road trip with Isla and I'm starting to seriously dread the idea of it. It's about 7 hours and Isla is 17 months (and 1 hour car rides are her limit before she loses her cool 😕! I feel a mix of 😭🤣🤞🤷🤦 these emotions. What's the longest road trip you went on with your little one? And PLEASE send me all your tips, tricks, and secrets to success. I will be bringing tons of snacks, books, and toys. What else can I do to help things go as smoothly as possible?!
😡😡😡Words by @sharksneedlove Most of you have no doubt heard of the 'shark fin trade’ industry so let's delve into some science on the topic.
Over the decades the demand for sharkfin soup has boomed as economies have grown in wealth and the prestigious sharkfin soup dish has become within reach of the masses. During a study conducted in 2006 the hammerhead family were identified as the second most abundant species group in the international trade of fins, which is alarming given their endangered status on the IUCN Redlist. To go on; great hammerheads in particular were highly sought after due to their large fin size which are prized in Hong Kong, fetching over 300 USD per lb. Although progress to reduce the demand for sharkfin is slowly moving downwards the fight is still very much on.
If you’d like to know accurate information on this subject I urge you to follow @diegocardenosa as he is on the front line making improvements and truly making a difference in this dark industry. Educating with facts such as ‘100 million sharks are killed every year’ whilst diving and showcasing a few charismatic species is great, but it won’t save them. The real, often time consuming, dull, repetitive, sitting in an office type of work being done by people like Diego will. Hats off to the people putting in the time to challenge, and influence the sharkfin ‘production’ infrastructures.
