Last November, when a team of dive guides and guests aboard the 112-foot vessel Solmar V went for their first dive of the day near Socorro Island, Mexico, they spotted a pregnant whale shark tangled in a 2" rope. On their second dive, they saw the same shark again and proceeded to cut it free. You can watch the rescue in the video below. As the issue of marine debris becomes more pervasive, scenes like this will become even more common than they are today. Photo: (c) David Valencia
