    Negative generalization of people is bad. My apology. Post has been edited accordingly.

    Very interesting documentary about whats likely to happen with fish in pretty much all the oceans... Its quite an old documentary (2010), but things have not changed a lot since it was made.

    Thanks for posting the link. So, were you on that trip?

    I'll be on Blue Manta in 5 months. :)

    Dan_T, this video is from P.J.Widestand, a videographer on the Blue Manta during a spring crossing trip.

    Good to know. Will he be there in the Fall crossing trip too? Is he replacing Nu Parnupong?

    One liveaboard or a random trip is not representative of the Banda Sea, the coral ecosystem, health of fish, and bleaching events.

    Dan_T, I would not say anyone is replacing Nu. P.J., Nu, and Andrei, plus a few other videographers move about between LoBs, other dive regions, and other travel/work commitments.
