Pasaron casi seis años para que un grupo de científicos vuelva a fotografiar y filmar al #tiburón blanco más grande que haya sido registrado, #DeepBlue. El pasado 16 de enero del 2019 el enorme escualo fue registrado por cámaras en #Hawái. La última vez que fue visto fue en el año 2013 cerca de las costas de #México .
. ‘Deep Blue’ es un tiburón hembra que mide cerca de siete metros de largo y pesa cerca de 2,5 toneladas. Según científicos que han estudiado al animal, su edad podría ser de 50 años -los tiburones de esta especie llegan a vivir 70 años- .
Mark Mohler y Kimberly Jeffries fueron los buzos que lograron fotografiar, filmar e inclusive nadar junto a ‘Deep Blue’ y compartieron su experiencia en la red social Instagram. “Mi primera reacción fue de incredulidad. Ella siguió tres tiburones tigre hacia el cadáver de una ballena, y su gran tamaño los hacía parecer barracudas”, declaró Mohler.
The music of Better Barefoot brought Deep Blue to Oahu! Last week we featured a great white in our flyer, and then suddenly Deep Blue pays us a visit off Oahu! Beautiful female great white believed to be one of the largest alive at 20ft and over 50 years old. Great white spotting are rare in Hawaii, but they do migrate from California waters during the winter. She must have needed her fill of Better Barefoot music! Next gig Jerry's in Waialua on Aloha Friday Jan 25th! See you there! #betterbarefootband#jerryspizzanorthshore#jerryspizzawaialua#deepblue#teddysburgers
Meeting face to face with the worlds largest great white ever recorded “Deep Blue”. These two passionate ocean conservationists @oceanramsey and @juansharks keep teaching us how little we know about sharks and that there are so many things to learn... Repost @juansharks. The first great white shark I ever swam with was in 2005 off my home #Haleiwa with a similarly large great #whiteshark who also rocked the boat I was on at the time working with sharks. I guess I am lucky that history repeats and not much has changed which made me confident but not complacent during this encounter but what has changed is shark populations are severely declining but for the first time ever I’ve seen this huge shift in perception in the last 5 years mostly due to imagery and the work that @oceanramsey and the team at #oneoceandiving and @oneoceandivingprogram and conservation and research division does (with people like @mermaid_kayleigh and @forrest.in.focus ). I hope my conservation images like this help people to question their perceptions and realize the beauty, and importance of sharks and I hope that they inspire the kind of compassion and connection we need to have with nature and sharks, to help protect them and #coexist along side them. You don’t have to love them but they do need to exist, they are absolutely critical for the health of marine ecosystems which all life relies on. 📽 by @forrest.in.focus . . . . #helpsavesharks#savesharks#sharks#shark#discoversharks#greatwhiteshark#sea
غواصان با یکی از بزرگترین کوسههای سفید دنیا 'رفیق شدند'
غواصان در سواحل هاوایی توانستند با دیپبلو #کوسه سفید مشهور و عظیمالجثهای که شش متر طول و دو و نیم تن وزن دارد شنا کنند و با این کوسه ماده که گمان میرود باردار باشد عکس یادگاری هم بگیرند.
بعضی از غواصان حتی توانستند به قدری به این کوسه سفید نزدیک شوند که او را لمس کنند. دیپبلو یکی از بزرگترین کوسههای سفید جهان است که مشخصاتش در دادههای بین المللی ثبت شده است.
این کوسه به سواحل اوآهو آمده بود تا از بقایای جسد یک وال اسپرم تغذیه کند و محققان و غواصان که مشغول فیلمبرداری از چند کوسه ببری در آنجا بودند ابتدا با دیدن دیپبلو شگفت زده شدند اما کمی بعد تصمیم گرفتند با او شنا کنند.
I am so glad I came across this amazing woman @oceanramsey. Here she is free diving with one of the largest great white sharks that we know of #deepblue. She is doing her best to bring attention to #oceanconservation and #sharkconservation . And dispel the misinformation out there about sharks. Over 70,000,000(!!!!!!) are killed for sport or #sharksfinsoup. Sharks need protection too. Our oceans need them. A women to be admired for sure. And to me this says so much about fear. The older I get the more I realize if ever there was an evil out there it’s fear. We need to live fearlessly and with love ( with respect too of course). ...
I’ve been fascinated by sharks 🦈 since I was a kid. Let’s show them some love. If you are fascinated and want to show your support check out these remarkable people @oceanramsey@juansharks@mermaid_kayleigh . All I can say is WOW and so grateful there are beautiful people out there doing this work and spreading awareness. #livewell#livefearlessly#livewithlove❤️ #sharkawareness#sharkconservation
i’d like to put this feeling in a jar. calmness and exhilaration co existing.
but that is also what yoga is.
all the things that light up your soul and allow you to feel untethered.

How amazing is this. Deep Blue-the biggest female great white to be recorded- has been seen again. Showing no harm towards the diver and peacefully swimming. Just shows you that we can coexist and there’s no need to hunt them
INCRÍVEL! Mergulhadores do Havaí foram surpreendidos pela visita de uma grande celebridade do mundo marinho nesta semana: um tubarão-branco gigante que, pelas marcas semelhantes, acredita-se ser o tubarão fêmea “Deep Blue”, famoso entre os estudiosos da espécie e que não era visto desde 2013, quando sua aparição foi registrada nas águas do México.
O gigante tubarão tem mais de seis metros e estava se alimentando de uma baleia cachalote morta, a nove quilômetros da costa de Oahu, uma ilha havaiana. Os mergulhadores que a encontraram acreditam que ela possa estar esperando filhotes, devido ao tamanho da barriga.

Deep Blue // What just happened? That’s all I can say about today! This morning @oceanramsey@juansharks@email@example.com and myself set off on an expedition to survey sharks that had gathered to feed off a dead sperm whale. We saw some sharks that we have ID’ed in our @oneoceanresearch database and observed behavior of a few species of sharks. Next thing you know this massive, likely pregnant (or just very full on whale) Great White Shark appeared! This amazing female is believed to be #DeepBlue, the largest white shark ever filmed! I always wondered how I would feel the moment I met a white shark and it was nothing like I had thought. This lady was so cautious, yet curious, slow moving, and gentle. She was rubbing herself against our boat while rough tooth dolphins played on the tip of her snout. Like WHAT! Dolphins just playing with her (check my IG story and highlights)! I couldn’t believe my eyes. So grateful to have been in this life changing moment with my mentors and best friends @oceanramsey@juansharks, teammate @forrest.in.focus, as well as my fiancé and love @camgrantphotography who took this amazing photo! So much more content to come by our photographers on scene @oneoceandiving. Photo by @camgrantphotography 📸
I woke up today to an uglier world. A world where I lost faith in people. So rarely does sharing my imagery bring me sorrow. A number of days ago I shared the discovery that Deep Blue, a rather charismatic and large female great white shark, had been documented roaming our waters. It’s huge, in my small little world so focused on the ocean. I’ve been to Guadalupe and heard the legend of Deep Blue, Reina del mar, but to see her here in our waters and to document her feeding... I thought it was a once in a lifetime chance. Since then I know sometimes we can get second chances at amazing things. I’ve been ecstatic at the global support and outreach from scientists and fans. To collaborate and participate in disseminating new knowledge and help connect dots that support papers has been the greatest honor. To be able to share this experience with the world, to see people take interest and care enough to take action, that’s really what it’s about isn’t it? Unfortunately instead of the joy that I expected from these photographs and videos I’ve seen a world that has lost sight of the real priority. Instead of concentrating on the beautiful miracle and documentation of two previously unheard of and new to the world female white sharks of reproductive size, we bicker and fight amongst ourselves. Instead of honoring this beautiful and sacred natural event we desecrate the body. I am heartbroken to see the treatment of the palaoa (sperm whale) by multiple members of our dive community. I urge everyone to take a step away from the media and not feed into the sensationalism. I urge you to continue reading and learning about these beautiful creatures, there are already papers out about the presence of these ocean greats in our waters. I hope one day that the identification of these new sharks leads to more discoveries and insights into their behavior. I urge you to respect and honor this occasion, not turn it into a circus, uphold dignity and respect for the passing of an ocean giant. Most of all I urge you to care, to continue to take actions to protect our planet. Take small steps towards a bigger goal, and to cherish this special event we have been lucky enough to witness.

🦈 These divers were surprised by a giant, but gentle, great white shark near Hawaii.
