In Koh Tao (not sure about the rest of Thailand though) there is a restriction of 5-6m away from whale sharks when using strobes. Makes sense, but again, has anyone done a research on that or just a random distance proposal?[/quote]
Its just random. I think the guidance is generally no people within a certain distance full stop.
I guess Khao Tao (and elsewhere) there biggest group you want to keep away are the 40+ barely swimming idiots with massive selfie sticks and those seeking to stroke the thing.
5-6m obviously means no strobes at all. It also means no useful photo even without strobes. Its not based on any science or research at all.
