In the video Ocean Ramsey and her team encountered what is possibly the largest great white shark ever recorded.
“Shark populations around Hawaii are unfortunately declining and there are currently no laws to protect sharks from being killed for any reason other than banning killing only for their fins and even that law has many loop holes and hasn’t been upheld.
We (@OneOceanDiving research team) study shark behavior and we teach people how to avoid adverse interactions. Our research and work aims to help reduce shark related fatalities and educate others on the importance of sharks. We have a program that runs daily off oahu to take people out to teach them about sharks and how to avoid a bite as well as their current conservation plight while we gather shark research data on behavior and abundance and specific individuals. The program is open to the public http://OneOceanDiving.com
Today (Jan 15th) was extremely special because while I (Ocean Ramsey) work with (great) white sharks all around the world they are extremely rare in Hawaii and this individual may be one of the largest recorded and shows similar markings to “Deep Blue” a shark I’ve studied in Isla Guadalupe, Mexico where I’ve done most of my work with white sharks.”
