Get into the habit of always taking your own bags with you or refusing a plastic bag at our local shops. And if for any reason you do genuinely need a plastic bag, take it out with you the next day and use it again. THEN use it to transport your sandy flip-flops back home with you at the end of your holiday. Please help us at Scubafish to keep our sea and island clean and start saying NO to plastic bags.
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.
Over 70% of our planet is covered by the Ocean, which is home to 80% of all life. Therefore it goes without saying, that protecting sharks, as one of the main regulators within this ecosystem, is crucial to our life on Earth. In part, our existence depends on theirs.
Trash Hero bottles let you get a much-needed water refill from all around the island, including all 4 Scubafish shops.
On March 21st, 2015, a group of marine scientists along with the help of Scubafish dive teams and volunteers will release 200 Western Clownfish into the Ko Haa Lagoon.
The Clownfish Release Project is generously funded by the owner of Pimalai Resort and Spa, Khun Anurat Tiyaphorn. The actual research is lead by Dr. Thorn Thamrongnawasawat, Head of the Department of Marine Sciences at Kasetsart University and supported by the Thai Department of Fisheries.
This year (2014) marks the 10th anniversary of the annual Clownfish Release conducted by Dr Thon and his team of marine scientists and supported by Pimalai Resort & Spa and Scubafish PADI 5 Star Dive Centre.
This year The Clownfish Release is on Saturday 22nd March 2014 and Scubafish are delighted to be supporting ‘The Clownfish Release Project 2014,’ organised by Pimalai Resort and Spa.
The event will be held at the beautiful islands of Ko Haa. It will be slightly different this year, as the Clownfish are going to be released at Ko Haa Lagoon and unlike previous years, they will be released into shallower waters. They will be released at a depth of 5 metres to allow participants who are non-divers to view all of the action.
