Powerful image by @juansharks 💪🏽🦈 of @mermaid_kayleigh and #roxythetigershark on a #pelagicdive with @oceanramsey & crew of @oneoceandiving! here you can see roxy girl has a long and heavy rope stuck in her mouth and often ingesting it into her gills as well. abandoned or lost fishing gear is one of the most prevalent marine animal entanglement causes affecting a variety of species of marine life around the globe. from huge free drifting nets in the open sea to smaller fishing line and lead on the reef it affects the health of our entire ocean! it doesn’t stop there either. plastic bags, utensils, straws, toothbrushes, and the micro plastics is all breaks down into is consumed by fish, turtles, monk seals, sea birds and other marine life which leads to suffocation or starvation. there is good news though, we can #turnthetide and #makeadifference with our choices every single day. you can reduce your use of #singleuseplastic by using #reusable items like we sell @oneoceandesigns! or when you visit a beach, lake, river, or even local park you can pick up any rubbish you can as most times it all leads back to the #ocean no matter how land locked you are. if you live on #oahu please join our amazing group of #seasters for a reef and #beachcleanup at #chinawalls from 12-3! bring your own dive gear & knife or scissors to cut the line and lead off of the #reef. cant wait to see you all out there helping us to #savetheocean!

Missing our buddy and great photographer @jaymgreiner 🖤📷🌊 #wave#seeyousoon#notgoodbye ・・・
it covers #twothirds of our planet. each wave contributues to an enduring pattern of rhythms perfectly formed, each serving a purpose. if you think about it, the content of a wave formation is quite incredible; the textures, the lines of symmetry, and the power generated without our influence or control. these moments happen so fast, that without a camera, are hard to appreciate. a perspective captured in tahiti // mo'orea.
