Diving Morrison Springs was a whole new experience for me. The dive was extraordinary, and even though the spring wasn’t in the best condition, it was still breathtaking! Definitely coming back when the water is crystal clear and blue! #morrisonsprings#scubadiving#cavern#cave#florida
ANEMONEFISH AND SEA ANEMONES-SYMBIOSIS AND MUTUALISM :
✏️They have a symbiotic, mutualistic relationship, each providing a number of benefits to the other. The sea anemone protects the anemonefish from predators, as well as providing food through the scraps left from the anemone's meals and occasional dead anemone tentacles, and functions as a safe nest site.
✏️In return, the anemonefish defends the anemone from its predators and parasites. The anemone also picks up nutrients from the anemonefish's excrement. The nitrogen excreted from anemonefish increases the amount of algae incorporated into the tissue of their hosts, which aids the anemone in tissue growth and regeneration.
✏️The activity of the anemonefish results in greater water circulation around the sea anemone, and it has been suggested that their bright coloring might lure small fish to the anemone, which then catches them. Studies on anemonefish have found that they alter the flow of water around sea anemone tentacles by certain behaviours and movements such as "wedging" and "switching". Aeration of the host anemone tentacles allows for benefits to the metabolism of both partners, mainly by increasing anemone body size and both anemonefish and anemone respiration.
. ✏️Several theories are given about how they can survive the sea anemone poison:
. . 🐠The mucus coating of the fish may be based on sugars rather than proteins.This would mean that anemones fail to recognize the fish as a potential food source and do not fire their nematocysts, or sting organelles.
.. 🐠The coevolution of certain species of anemonefish with specific anemone host species may have allowed the fish to evolve an immunity to the nematocysts and toxins of their hosts.
Enjoying time with the flag of the “Bahrain Institute for Pearls & Gemstones” (DANAT) while learning how to dive on different spots off the coast of Madagascar: First on the “Nossa Senohra” ship wreck, then after visiting an unbelievable underground cave 27 meters under the surface. All that was possible thanks the the expertise and friendship of Marc Noverraz from “Colorline Madagascar” and Fred Lucas from “Salary Diving” near Tulear.

Here are the very first pearls i collected for DANAT while diving on a Portugese ship wreck off the coast of Madagascar... The pearls are red coral from the mediterranean that was used by Portugese for trade in the Orient. Actually it was quite unbelievable to be able to do that on my sixth dive! Thanks to Fred Lucas.

First day of spearfishing in 2018 in the books!! .
Spearfishing is one of our favorite recreational activities and we go as often as we can - conditions permitting 👌🏼! .
Today was absolutely perfect - the weather, the power of the wind, the direction of the wind, the tide, the visibility... absolutely beautiful! .
We also caught dinner 🐠, which is always a bonus!! .
It’s days like today where I am extremely thankful for my body and its capability to swim for hours 🏊♀️! Happy Sunday funday y’all!
