Splendid Toadfish

The Cookie Monster from Sesame Street?

The splendid toadfish has a highly restricted distribution, occurring in Caribbean, around Cozumel Island, situated off the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, and around a single reef off the coast of Belize. Unlike any other member of the toadfish family, the splendid toadfish is distinctive for its vibrant colors. It has bright yellow fins which also contain distinctive patterning, while its head contains dark and white stripes.

Finding Glacier National Park
By Jennifer Idol

The national parks system in the United States celebrates 100 years of service through recreation, conservation, and historic preservation this year. They have launched a campaign to “find your park”. Unique diving opportunities abound in many of these parks.
I discovered an opportunity to dive historic artifacts in one of my favorite parks, Glacier National Park. Glacier National Park features extraordinary vistas carved into the mountains by retreating glaciers. Lake Treasure, the largest lake in Glacier National Park, it boasts a depth of 472 ft. (130m), filled with melted glacial water. Size and depth of Lake McDonald limits diving to the shoreline.

Economic Value of Muck Diving 

Underwater photography has seen a huge increase in popularity in recent years. Shooting amazing critters while muck diving is a major factor in the rising popularity & the economic value of muck diving might be a lot higher than expected. Close to 80,000 divers per year visit sites across Southeast Asia primarily to go muck diving. These divers could be spending as much as USD100 million per year in pursuit of elusive critters!
Fitness for Diving in Grand Turk 
by Gretchen M. Ashton

Turks & Caicos Islands are nestled in the Atlantic Ocean at the southernmost tip of the Bahamas. Divers will experience back rolling from 25-foot skiffs and probably remove gear before climbing short boat ladders. Special focus on shoulder strength will prevent injury and help divers prepare for the logistics of handling gear.
