There are now two reliable places you can see Blacktip Reef Sharks – off the shores of Maya Bay and hanging in front of a restaurant in Karon.

Two blacktip reef sharks been discovered hanging in front of a seafood restaurant at Karon Beach.

A facebook user name ‘Sunshine Sketcher’ today posted a photo with the message read “This photo has been taken at a seafood restaurant at Karon Beach. It has been shared in foreign divers’ media group who are curious that this can be done? Many seafood restaurants like this are on the increase.”

“Seafood restaurant now use live sharks to attract foreign customers. In this picture is two blacktip reef sharks which are the same sharks found at Maya Bay. Another one look like a Shark ray.”

Meanwhile local marine expert Thon Thamrongsawat has commented on the picture saying, “these fish haven’t been protected yet by law, even if they are being banned for catching in the protected area. If they were caught, we cannot prove where they have been caught.”

Blacktip reef sharks are now frequently spotted at the recovering Maya Bay on Koh Phi Phi.
