Ken –

Thank you so much for your report and pictures from La Paz. It is certainly one of our most favorite places on the planet! It was really funny reading about your encounter with the Rottnerfish. Classic! We agree that the Fang Ming is a must-see dive. It’s great to hear that the sea life is enjoying it as much as we did.

On the buzzkill side, we were greatly saddened to read of your lack of sightings of hammerheads. That was one of our goals for originally wanting to go to La Paz, though there is certainly much more there to see which makes it worth the trip. We were skunked on our dives at El Bajo and Las Animas last October as well. And your summation that the increasing numbers of baitfish are confirmation of the population destruction is dead on the money. Tragic…just absolutely tragic.

Our biggest concern now…as we plan our trip to Cocos in 2009…is that we will be too late to see them there as well. We fear that not much will ever be done to save sharks. There is just too much ignorance and fear in the general public for there ever to be a wide enough outcry to stop the slaughter. They just aren’t cute-n-cuddly fur seals.

Anyway, thanks for another most excellent report and picture expose’. I’m hopefully going to post some photos of our October trip sometime in the near future (now that Chris got me straightened out on proper technique).
