Blueshark in deep water off Faial  Azores. Such a wonderful animal and sadly fished to extinction by the Spanish and Portuguese longliners. Not even fishing quotas for blues in the EU. If you are an European citizen https //stop finning.eu/ lang en

message Thank you very much gents.

Sven - I was trying to catch the moment when the male creates a "cloud" but it is always too fast (maybe one day). I didn't notice the eggs until aferwards - it was all too quick at the time

Jim - this was from our dive in Puerta Galera
