I'm moving!

I signed a lease for a new apartment this afternoon. I'm going to move out of my place in Gualo Rai...well, right now. I'm pretty excited. The apartment is in a great location. I'll write all about it in a future blog.


Yesterday I took the morning off to go to Managaha. Well, sort of. Even though I was technically off, I still took pictures of fish and coral. I shot some video, too.

The fish at Managaha are amazing! There was a school of Bluefin Trevali circling around the snorkling tourists. They must have been about two feet long each.

Now, we could kill those 8 fish and have one hell of a BBQ or we could charge 200 tourists $50 per day to go swimming with them. Which one do you think is better?

La, La, La,la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la,la totally stuck in my head!!!!! I'm fantasizing I'm on that boat with a big salty Margarita in my hand, sand on my bare feet, and oh yeah, I look like EJ in a bikini... I'm so jealous of your blog today! I'm am frying on about 5 counts of burnout! After finishing up the women's league I took the dogs to the vet for their shots, the kids to Dr. Ada for their shots, and have been putting in some serious overtime at work. Whoooeee! Managaha is calling me!!!!

yikes...
a few more years of people walking and standing in that shallow coral area and there won't be any fish (or coral) for the tourists to pay to see...

Managaha is in an MPA, but there are issues with overuse and feeding the fish, as you can see in this video.

This resource is not being properly managed.

Yeah. I noticed the tourists feeding the fish when I was there last month, too. But nobody is stopping them. And I suspect the tour guides encourage it, take them to the store to buy the canned meat they use, and talk up the fun of fish nibbling on your fingers.

Who should be managing Managah?

The underwater stuff used a Canon S80 with an Ikelite housing and the above water stuff used a Canon S2.
