For many years Playa del Carmen, Mexico has hosted the annual migration of female bull sharks. Each year at the same time two groups of individuals have perused exploiting this natural resource. On one side you have healthy dive operators taking thousands of tourists each season and on the other side you have shark fishermen with permits hunting these sacred grounds. No agreement has been reached.
The Pelagic Life crew decided to give a new twist to a seemingly "standardized" dive in Playa del Carmen. We hope this video encourages both the dive operators and the fishermen to seek change and innovate solutions that will benefit both parties.
Many thanks to Pepe “Loco” from Pepe Dive Center for making this impossible dream a reality.
