Scubafish daily takes part in The Thailand eShark Project, which gathers data from divers in Thailand and hopes to be the largest project undertaken in one country, by divers for shark conservation.

Trash Hero bottles let you get a much-needed water refill from all around the island, including all 4 Scubafish shops.
