Shark Talk 1 - excellent Video by Sharkquest Arabia!

Once again, kudos to Jonathan Ali Khan.

I was critical of his last interview but this time, I am totally impressed.
His Sharkquest Arabia is conducting extremely important, pioneering and smartly inclusive (as opposed to confrontational) work in the Arabian Sea and fully deserves everybody's support.

Much of the underwater footage in this video is apparently from the largely unknown Musandam that juts into the straight of Hormuz separating the Gulf of Oman from the Persian Gulf. It is a current swept, nutrient rich and consequently, highly biodiverse habitat that much reminds me of the area around the Seven Brothers in the Bab-El- Mandeb that equally features enormous schools of Fish and large seasonal aggregations of Whale Sharks.

This is excellent stuff - enjoy!
