Bad news from the Silver Bank to 98 nautical miles from the Dominican Republic, our collaborator Ignacio Agudo has shared images taken by Damien Beri of this wonderful place and it has been verified that the whitening of corals is severe.
Very little sea life was seen and the place is dying due to illegal overfishing.
Worse still people working with whale watching and snorkeling in the area have reported sightings of Dominican fishing boats that have taken tons of shark fins in the last few years to be probably sold to the Chinese market.
The images speak for themselves.
