    Nach einem Flug und dann einer Nacht in Semporna fahren wir heute mit einem Boot raus aufs Meer zur Insel Mabul. Dort bleiben wir drei Nächte und eventuell länger, falls es uns gefällt :)

    Hier mal ein paar Fotos von heute morgen... Zähne putzen mit Fischgeruch vom Markt vor dem Fenster 👌Read more

    I went to semporna, mainly for the diving, there isn't anything else, really. I took my PADI Open water here, on my first real dive I already saw so many turtles! As many as 10 in one spot it really left a impression on me haha. I liked the diving so much, I stayed for another day of fun diving. Apart from lots of turtles, I some other notable stuff as well, such as crocodile fish, moray eals, groupers, scorpion fish, stone fish, a sea snake and lots of lots of coral!Read more

    Of course, I love fish markets! As a fish biologist, it is my natural habitat! Whereas markets selling terrestrial meat products usually harbour a handful of species only (pork, beef, chicken, lamb and perhaps goat if you are lucky) fish markets often display dozens of fish species...and then we didn't even start with the arthropods and molluscs diversity found as well (div. species of lobsters, crabs, shrimps, octopuses, mussles etc).

    However, there is a clear downside of the whole fish trading thing! Especially on small scale fish markets in developing countries none of the fish which get landed are ever reportet, there is no control about iligeal fish species and undersized fish being sold. It is assumed that 50% of the worlds consumed fish is caught and traded by small scale fisheries. So try to make a correct stock assumption with this data basis! #futurechalange :-)

    Palmoil and Fishmarkets...that summs up the general impression I had when visiting the small town of Semporna in the malaysian part of Borneo. We went there to take a look at the local tuna fishery and most of all to get to know some skilled tuna fishermen...more to comeRead more
