New research has revealed the depths warm water-loving reef sharks will go in their search for food, after an international team of scientists tracked silvertip sharks diving as far as 750m below the ocean’s surface.
An ocean traveller has even more vividly the impression that the ocean is made of waves than that it is made of water.
