The Shark Reef Marine Reserve in Fiji was declared Fiji's first National Marine Park in 2014 thanks to the efforts of the team of Beqa Adventure Divers. The shark diving operator combines shark diving, conservation, and science and offers safe encounters with these fascinating sharks at the same time.
Up to eight different shark species can be observed at Shark Reef but the most iconic and abundant sharks here at the massive Pacific Ocean bull sharks.
A great ecotourism example with a lot of winners on all sides: the villages that traditionally own the reef patches within the Shark Corridor (that also encompasses the Shark Reef) exchanged their fishing rights for a fee, that every diver pays directly to the villages, the sharks stay alive within the marine protected area, the tourists enjoy safe yet thrilling encounters and at the same time shark myths are destroyed and people educated about sharks, their threats, biology, and ecology.
