The latest issue, Issue 2, of the Underwater Journal is now available for downloading at www.underwaterjournal.com

In it, Jim Abernethy provided a wonderful story and images on using his flying boat for locating the dolphins in the Bahamas.

Great article and great pictures. Everytime Jim comes out of the water his camera is full of award winning photos, and I've never seen anyone quite so fast and efficient in retouching with Photoshop.

Nice online mag - but the editorial is very sobering, seems like we now hear (and experience) this dreadful depletion issue everywhere we turn. I understand the thrill that a fisherman or spearfisherman feels when he catches that big fish. Forty years ago 'I was that guy'. But that is so yesterday - don't people understand we have a crisis on our hands? *geesh*
