In Fiji, diving with big, hungry sharks - BBC

A surreal scene

In the crystalline waters off Fiji’s main island of Nadi, Scuba divers can take the plunge with a mind-boggling variety of toothy predators: tiger sharks, nurse sharks, whitetip reef sharks, lemon sharks – even massive bull sharks.

Pictured here, a trained feeder 25m below sea level pulls mahi mahi and tuna heads from a large green trash bin.

Without a cage or any protection, the diver dangles the meat before the sharks. And with that, the feeding begins. (Lia Barrett)
