Shark diver encounters huge sharks in Hawaii

Shark diver encounters huge sharks in Hawaii

The divers came across the animal, which weighs 2.5 tonnes and is almost 6 metres long, when the carcass of a dead sperm whale drew it to Oahu's south shore.

The biggest known great white shark in the world has been spotted off the coast of Hawaii by divers.

'We had a very long attractive dive with her and we were all very much enthusiastic about the encounter'. "[Jeffries] was first to spot her on 13 January 2019, and we confirmed the ID with the white shark authority, this morning", he posted to Facebook.

'If you asked me yesterday the answer would be freediving with Deep Blue, a great white, the largest ever documented, who was last seen in 2013 in Mexico.

"I actually highly discourage anyone from purposely jumping in the water with a great white or a tiger shark".

She describes how she waited patiently for the shark to approach on its way to feed on the carcass of a dead sperm whale.

The diving team spotted Deep Blue, who's believed to be more than 50 years of age, some 20 miles off the southern shores of Oahu, Hawaii News Now reported.

The huge great white could be the 'Deep Blue,' which is reputed to be the world's biggest shark and whose fame has seen it get its own Twitter account.

Britain pledges legislation in 2019 to combat deadly air pollution
In a landmark decision, High Court judges said the government's failure to require action from 45 local authorities with illegal levels of air pollution in their area was "unlawful".

"It's not petting sharks or pushing them off to maintain a respectable space that is hurting's the wasteful and cruel practice of grabbing and catching sharks to cut off their fins (which slowly kills them)". She was very interested and was looking at us.

A German tourist, Michael Maier, recounted filming the shark on a trip to Mexico in 2014.

The video shows the enormous apex predator swimming near researchers in steel cages, with one bold enough to be swimming outside the protection of the protective metal bars.

"I do have concerns for people just jumping in the water".

"That feeling of excitement and intrigue has never left me".

Great whites, which usually measure an average of 4.6m, are classified as vulnerable due to illegal fishing.

While Deep Blue's actual measurements are still up for argument, Domeier did suggest that the shark was possibly pregnant and that she was likely to head back to Mexico's Guadalupe Island after giving birth.

"It is about trying to get people to overcome the fear, but replace that with a healthy level of respect".
