Whale shark “Dhohokko”

Whale shark “Dhohokko”

Do you remember that we encountered a whale shark on 28th September 2017 while diving in Rasdhoo Madivaru?

In fact, whale sharks can be identified by the spots between the fins on their side and their mouth. We sent pictures from our whale shark to the “Maldivian Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP)” and the whale shark we encountered wasn’t identified so far.

He is now registered with number #330 and as we were the first divers who spotted him, we had the honor to give him a name: “Dhohokko”.

That’s the name of a very famous Maldivian singer.
