Stop Illegal Fishing at Ras Mohammed

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

We asked our Egyptian run dive centre about it, hoping perhaps it was a seasonal issue but no, they said it was all down to unregulated over-fishing. They also said that close inshore among the shallow reefs which are inaccessible to fishermen, the fish life was still good. We then did a lot of shore diving and found they were right. Spent a lot of dives on the hotel house reef at no more than 8m depth with a huge variety of fish and many of good size.
I don't know if this accords with the experiences of Red Sea regulars but I must say I found it pretty depressing.
