21.01.17Neil Anne300x225Another Whaleshark was dived with at White Rock this morning making this our 30th Dive of the year so far with a Whaleshark. Which makes it a statistical average of 1 whaleshark dive every 3 days for 2017. Not a bad average. Which also does go to show that Whalesharks do seem to be growing again in their numbers. Not quite to the extent of days of old but probably the best so far. In days of old if you talk to the old Thai Fishermen they would fish around Koh Tao & see Whalesharks in their 10's. The increase in Shark fin soup seems to have been the major factor for the loss in numbers over the last couple of decades but now that Shark Fin soup is becomming less popular due to worldwide condemnation & outrage we keep our fingers crossed that the Whaleshark numbers will once again rise to their 10's per whaleshark sighting. 'Fins'gers crossed!
