SAD NEWS ABOUT SHARK & RAYS.

A quarter of sharks and rays threatened with extinction.

Sawfish

January 2014: A staggering quarter of the world’s sharks and rays are threatened with extinction according to The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, with ray species particularly at risk.

The study, the result of a collaboration of 302 experts from 64 countries and the IUCN Shark Specialist Group (SSG), analysed the conservation status of 1,041 shark, ray and closely related chimaera species.

“Our analysis shows that sharks and their relatives are facing an alarmingly elevated risk of extinction,” says Dr Nick Dulvy, IUCN SSG Co-Chair and Canada Research Chair at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. “In greatest peril are the largest species of rays and sharks, especially those living in shallow water that is accessible to fisheries.”

Overfishing is the main threat to the species, according to the paper. Reported catches of sharks, rays and chimaeras peaked in 2003 and have been dominated by rays for the last 40 years. Actual catches are likely to be grossly under-reported.Unintentionally caught sharks and rays account for much of the catch, yet developing markets and depleting fishery targets have made this “bycatch” increasingly welcome.

Intentional killing of sharks and rays due to the perceived risk that they pose to people, fishing gear or target species is contributing to the threatened status of at least 12 species.

It gives me a possibility to explain why it is so fantastic under the surface.
 
What's best about it?
There is a total harmony with the water element and a great possibility to get close to so many animals.
 
What's worst about it?

To freeze your fingers so you cry when coming the surface and still wanting to take more pictures…

Favourite places?
My facourites are the Norwegian fjords and the beatiful islands of the Philippine archipelago.

AMBASSADOR HENRIK JONSSON

More about Henrik Jonsson
 
Let us introduce our Ambassador Henrik Jonsson
 
Henrik has been photographing since childhood and received his first photo published at the age of nine. He has won the Nordic Championships in in UW photography and was awarded at the Gothenburg Photo & Film Festival. Apart from publishing his images in places like the Swedish Museum of Natural History's advertising campaigns Henrik has held courses in photography for many many years. He is an experienced diver, traveler and diving instructor who have explored five continents over the past decade. Henrik also ventured into the world of video and shot a set of music videos underwater.

 

 

“Photography is a part of my daily work and still photography is a great passion in my life. I like the filmistic feeling that a big sensor brings into the image. After photographing underwater for a while I got frustrated swimming in lines and a divemaster hearding me and my buddy with a flock of other divers. In my opinion diving and underwater photography is done in buddy pairs and without any stress and speed. Exposure Expeditions is all about creative underwater photography, good opportunities and to give the guests time and piece of mind to do the work".


Henrik's tips for underwater photographers
 
 

1. Big pictures require big light. The sun is the biggest light we have – use it.

2. It’s not the number of dives that matters - it’s the hours of preparations.

3. And it’s not just the time spent underwater that matters - it’s the time spent in the viewfinder.

4. Don’t get close to the animals. Get really really close.
