Blacktipped reef sharks return to Koh Hong, Krabi – VIDEO


Yesterday morning, while Than Bok Khorani National Park staff were checking the area, they came across dozens of Blacktipped reef sharks swimming and feeding along the shores of Koh Hong in Krabi province.

They reported that there could be a group up up to 50 Blacktipped reef sharks, with a body length of almost 1 metre. They were chasing after mullet fish happily around the shores of ​​Koh Hong, a rare sight to see according to the marine officials. The appearance of the Blacktipped reef sharks has been reported for the 2nd time in the past month, after the closure of Than Bok Khorani National Park in Krabi province.

The headman of Koh Hong National Park Protection Unit says, “that a group of blacknose sharks and a variety of fish began to swim and come to find food to eat. More along the beach. Previously used to find food in deep coral reefs.”

“This phenomenon shows the abundance of nature and ecosystems combined with no disturbance from human activities causing sea creatures that haven’t been near the coastline in a long time to return in this period of time.”
