A Photo Essay

By Tony Griffitts

The Maldives is a group of islands (coral atolls) Southwest of Sri Lanka. The country consist of an archipelago 823 km long from North to South and 130 km at its greatest width. There are about 1200 islands that make up the country with the highest point only 2.4 meters above sea level.  About 200 of the islands are inhabited, with around 100 developed for tourist resorts.

The country has a population of about 400,000 people, with Islam as the official religion. Open practice of any other religion other than Islam is forbidden and liable to prosecution.

Malé is the capital of the Maldives. The Malé International Airport is on an island East of Malé. The island also has a sea port for seaplanes that take passengers to many resorts throughout the Maldives.

Many of the resorts do not allow fishing on the resort reefs which provides for the most pristine reefs I have ever had the opportunity to explore. The resorts cater to eco tourist that enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving.

On this trip we stayed and explored the reef of Mirihi and Athuruga Islands in the Ari atoll group of the Maldives.

To get to our resorts in the Maldives we flew from San Francisco to Dubai, and from Dubai to Malé. From Malé we took a seaplane to Mirihi. From Mirihi to Athuruga we took a resort boat. Our return back to the states required a seaplane from Athuruga to Malé. From Malé back to Dubai, then to San Francisco.

Being that the Maldives is located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, you will find some unique marine fish that are not found on Pacific reefs. Blonde orange-spine surgeon fish (Naso elegans), powder blue tang (Acanthurus leucosternon), yellowhead butterflyfish (Chaetodon xanthocephalus), and black finned clownfish (Amphiprion nigripes) are common on the reefs.

Black-tip (Carcharhinus melanopterus) and white-tip reef sharks (Triaenodon obesus) are often seen on the reefs. At Mirihi Island you can observe the black-tip reef sharks hunting fish gathered in large shoals in water less than 2 feet (60 cm) deep.

Large shoals of parrotfish and tangs are common on the reefs. Several large parrotfish species are also common on the reefs.

Only two species of anemonefish are found on the reefs, Amphiprion nigripes and Amphiprion clarkii. Anemonefish are normally found on the outer reef slopes, with the ritteri anemone (Heteractis magnifica) being the most common host for A. nigripes.

Heteractis magnifica were always found in small to large groups, with many separate groups usually within 30 feet (10 meters) of each other. Normally Heteractis magnifica is found at depths between 10 feet (3 m) to 30 feet (10 m).

Two other species of anemones are commonly associated with A. clarkii, Merten's carpet (Stichodactyla mertensii), and adhesive anemone (Cryptodendrum adhaesivum). Stichodactyla mertensii is found at depths between 6 feet (2 m) to 20 feet (6 m). Cryptodendrum adhaesivum is normally found at depths between 3 feet (1 m) to 6 feet (2 m).

All of the underwater photos and videos were taken with an Olympus TG-1 or TG-2 waterproof camera. A few videos and pictures were taken with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX9.
