oneoceandiving It might look silly to watch a shark come up and take a big gulp of air as if they were a person submerged for more than a minute, but that’s what sand tiger sharks do! though, they are not surfacing for the same reason a person would need to surface- they swallow the air to maintain buoyancy.  sand tiger sharks do not have a swim bladder, and frequently surface to swallow in air, which they store in their stomach. the retention of the air allows them to attain near- neutral buoyancy, which is very helpful and efficient in terms of the sand tigers hunting style. since the sand tiger has the same average density as the water in their neutrally buoyant state, they do not have to expend a lot of energy in order to swim, as they are able to suspend themselves in the water and move almost motionlessly. (perrine, 1999) due to their lazier lifestyle, sand tiger sharks are able to actively ventilate and hang out in the currents in order to move. (smith et. al. 2004) since sand tiger sharks are relatively inactive compared to some other species, along with their rugged and intense shark looks, they are also sought after for aquariums. in the transport process, handlers remove some of the air being held in their stomach so that the shark is at a state of negative buoyancy, and is easier to transport in the container. it can be harmful to the health of any species to go to a captive environment, and while sand tigers are present in many large scale aquariums, transport and adjustment pose a large threat to their natural process of maintaining buoyancy. after the air is forcefully taken out of the shark for transport and reintroduced into an aquatic environment, the sand tiger must frequently gulp air at the surface to get back to their optimal neutral buoyancy. if this is not done, or is not achievable for the shark in the stressful environment, the shark will need to be introduced to a tube in order to artificially get air into the stomach. (smith et.al. 2004) come out with us to learn more about sharks and observe them in the wild on their own terms on a pelagic research dive! post by @kberry122 epic photo by @uw_photography_

sharktagging Happy #sharkhumorsunday! a shark’s eyes are designed to see through water, so they’re not as effective above the surface- much like how our vision is distorted underwater, because our eyes are designed to see through air. despite this, white sharks are known to occasionally poke their heads above the surface! while it’s not totally clear why the sharks perform this behavior, called a “spy hop”, they may be looking or sniffing for potential prey. thank you to liz climo (@lizclimo) for the great cartoon! __________________________ #shark #sharks #fish #fishing #miami #florida #science #sharkresearch #research #ocean #saltlife #water #conservation #nature #wildlife #nofilter #ig #instagood #instalike #instalove #photooftheday #picoftheday #sundayfunday #haha #lol #see #eyes #funny #humor

oneoceandiving In one of yesterday’s posts we discussed where galapagos sharks got their name, but have you ever wondered where sandbar sharks (another species seen on our tours) get their name? the #sandbarshark is commonly found over muddy or sandy bottoms in shallow coastal waters such as bays, estuaries, harbors, or the mouths of rivers, but it also swims in deeper waters as well. sandbar sharks are found in tropical to temperate waters world wide and are a part of the carcharhinidae family, native to the atlantic ocean and the indo-pacific. it is distinguishable by its very high first dorsal fin and inter-dorsal ridge. it is not to be confused with its similarly named shark cousin, the sand tiger shark. the sandbar shark is also called the thick skin shark or brown shark.it is one of the biggest coastal sharks in the world, and is closely related to the dusky shark, the big nose shark, and the bull shark. its dorsal fin is triangular and very high and it has very long pectoral fins. sandbar sharks usually have heavy-set bodies and rounded snouts that are shorter than the average shark's snout. their upper teeth have broadly uneven cusps with sharp edges (allen). its second dorsal fin and a**l fin are close to the same height. females reach s****l maturity around the age of 13 with an average fork-length of 154.9 cm (stevens). while males tend to reach maturity around age 12 females have been found to exhibit both biennial and triennial reproductive cycles, ovulate in early summer, and give birth to an average of 8 pups, which they carry for 1 year before giving birth (baremore). this species is long lived and takes over a decade to reach s****l maturity making it extremely difficult for them to rebound after heavy fishing pressure. we are grateful to still have relatively healthy populations of this species here in hawaii whereas the atlantic population has been depleted by 85-97% (iucn, musick et al. 2009). post by @brian_marrocco photo by @ambermozo

oneoceandiving Recent research indicates that surprisingly, not all sharks are carnivores! in order to be an omnivore, an organism must be able to get nutrients and energy from both plants and animals. at the society for integrative and comparative biology 2018 meeting, samantha leigh reported that the bonnethead shark was actually able to digest seagrass! the sharks in the study were fed a diet of 90% seagrass that was marked with enriched co2. blood tests were then analyzed to determine whether or not carbon from the seagrass was digested based on the markers. levels of an enzyme that breaks down cellulose, b-glucosidase, were spiked in the guts of the sharks.  in some populations of bonnethead sharks, juveniles were found to have 62% of their stomach contents composed of seagrass. whether or not eating seagrass is incidental has yet to be determined. other scientists in the past have noted that the bonnethead consumes seagrass (cortes et al., 1996), but now we know that the shark is a true omnivore. bonnethead sharks have a smaller head compared to its cousin, the hammerhead, and grow to a max length of 150 cm (compagno, 1984). post by @nikitapatel_23 photo by michael patrick o’neil @mpophotography ________________ want to learn more about sharks or adoption visit our website: oneoceandiving.com & join us in the water in #hawaii on #oahu’s #northshore to #swimwithsharks and #divewithsharksinhawaii with a @oneoceandiving trained #marinebiologist / #sharksafetydiver check out our #shark and #marineresearch @oneoceanresearch and our outreach program @oneoceaneducation #learnaboutsharks and our non-profit @waterinspired conservation group and founders: @juansharks and @oceanramsey want to join the team? become a @oneoceanglobal ambassador looking to support in other ways? check out our not-for-profit marine conservation awareness apparel and gifts @oneoceandesigns or at oneoceandesigns.com mahalo and thank you for supporting #internationalsharkproject #hawaiisharkcount #sharkresearch #ocean #oneocean #savetheocean #savesharks #helpsavesharks #oceanconservation #sharkconservation

marine_biologist._.myjob Because no trip to the bahamas is complete without a hairy-nosed swimming pig 🐷 i know there's been a lot of discussion about the swimming pigs recently and i'm not sure anyone knows why so many died on the beach there. it's true for them that the island isn't quite the paradise humans perceive it to be, i'd guess they're hungry & thirsty a lot of the time πŸ˜” in saying that it's still a universe apart from (better than) the conditions millions of pigs endure in our intensive farming industries. the pigs on big majors aren't going anywhere any time soon so personally i'd rather see these guys on the beach and give them some fresh water and food than sail straight past.... credit to : @lauracorbe doubletap & tag a friend below‡ follow us if you love marine biologist ❣ update videos everyday ❀ ------------------------------------------------ #internationalsharkproject #hawaiisharkcount #sharkresearch #ocean #oneocean #savetheocean #savesharks #helpsavesharks #oceanconservation #sharkconservation #itstheirocean #apexpredatornotmonster
