Once again it is time for all of the divers and snorkellers that visit the beautiful waters of Fiji to take part in The Great Fiji Shark Count, and Dive Wananavu is no different.  Every time we hit the water throughout the month of April we will be makring down all of the shark, turtle and ray species we see (or don't, it all goes to help the scientists!).

All of the information that we collect will help towards trying to get a better idea of Fiji's shark populations so that they can be better protected.

On December 30th, Tony Koens – director/owner of Subsurface Fiji Adventure Diving  and Watersportsand his partner Carina Bjers, also with Subsurface Fiji, decided to take their SUP (Standup Paddle Board) out for a leisurely afternoon paddle.

They left the beach and were headed towards Naisoso when a few hundred metres down the coast they spotted a large turtle net that had 250mm square mesh and was about 200 metres in length according to Tony.
