Thank you Ocean Portal! These are truly important ways to conserve our very fragile reef systems. Another good way to help protect the reefs, especially if you are a fairly new cert.Diver, Please learn some of the ways to control your buoyancy, avoid touching reefs, Fan and Gorgonian corals, most people don't realize that touching living corals, sponges, etc, there are acids in our fingers some more than others. This kills living things, so please do not touch just look. If you are posing for a photo do it near, and also don't feed the fish, with anything but what they eat, other fish,(warning! carrying frozen fish in a bag or on you somewhere attracts Sharks)! No dog food, No Hamburger or hotdogs (contain grease & oils), frozen peas, these things can cause fish eventually be sick, inflamed gills which can cause infections, and skin Ulcers. These ultimately lead to death.
If you see a resort or other divers (no matter their experience) doing this, Please politely, inform them that this will eventually destroy their lively or the hood. If they give you any problem like mind your own business (which it is your business) Please report them to the proper environmental agencies! Such as Ocean Portal, Project Aware, and many others, they will know what to do! Thank you! Be a safe, and conscious diver! Submersibly yours,™ Blu Rivard
