I am a marine biologist and I have been working on marine conservation since 1998. I am familiar with marine biology monitoring such as reef health monitoring, fish population survey, spawning aggregation sites survey and monitoring, manta ray survey, turtle nesting beach survey, cetacean survey, and other research activities using several methods from scuba diving to aerial survey. I am also scuba diver instructor with more than 100 openwater divers I have certified. In last 5 years.
My group consist 4 divers for this trip and this is an important moment because this is the first time I dive with my own dive equipments – although I have made several dives at Liberty wreck but I always excited to make others, We pass the middle of ship straight to deep to find a 40 cm purple gorgonian where we find the pygmy seahorse (Hippocampus bargibanti). We met a big hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) then we swim to the bottom of wreck and find something which hide behind corals. I come closer and see a red color and it has blink with bright blue white color like an electric neon. This beautifull biota known as flame or electric scallop (Lima sp.), feed from filtering water to get micro plankton. This dive spot is one of my best dive! As an wreck this spot has complete attraction for divers who come from all over the world. At the end of the dive we swim between school of thousand of trevallies.
