    Burning the toxins on land is a pretty negative thing to do to.

    Some way of recycling would be better but where is that going to happen and then what to do with the non recyclable items. Sigh.

    Last time that I was in Raja Ampat, there were a great number of captured boats tied up in port.

    I wonder if there isn't a way to repurpose them or some of them.

    Dan, I knew I liked you when I met you. It always disgusts me to see videos such as this.

    I see people saying "oh we have seen more sharks here" as if that means these videos are all lies. This is a worldwide problem and maybe in your small piece of this massive planet the shark numbers are on the rise, but globally they are declining rapidly.

    Hopefully we can dive together again in near future.

    BTW, I'll be in your neighborhood in a couple of months, going to Red Sea southern route, 21-30 December with Red Sea Aggressor There are still 4 spots available to book at $1450 / spot ($950 discount). Come and joint us if that time looks good for you.
