Shark Chronicles 059 – Different fauna

Shark Chronicles 059 – Different fauna

Posted by Sylvain Haldimann on September 21, 2009

During the beginning of the week two of us went at sea with Simon Elwen and Ryan Johnson, to make a whale survey offshore.

During this trip we met some whales, a huge pod of dolphins, one lost penguin and a lovely sunfish chilling close to the Point. Being among dolphins, seeing them jumping here and there, is an amazing sensation and we had a fantastic day.

In contrast of this, the number of sharks met during the chumming trips has decreased compared to the previous weeks. This could be due to the weather conditions, the behaviour of the swell, the water temperature, or other reasons. Fortunately, there are currently a lot of whales in the area, and we can see many of them breaching in the bay.

We all are waiting for the big sharks to come back!
