There is a new tenant in the shark pool. Variola that were seen floating on the water in the area of the coral reserve were collected by the Reserve staff and transferred for further treatment at the Underwater Observatory Marine Park.
Treatment by the Park’s team of divers included puncturing the swim bladder to release air, and immediately transferring it into a dark environment. A few days later, when the Variola’s condition seemed to improve, it was transferred to the shark pool.
The sharks are fine!
