Elasmodiver = A shark and ray diver
Elasmodiver was originally loaded onto
the web in 2002 it was intended to be a simple shark and ray field guide
showcasing the species of elasmobranchs that divers and snorkelers
could expect to encounter. Responding to requests for more information,
Elasmodiver's mandate expanded to include more specialized shark and ray
content in areas such as:
conservation of sharks and rays,
shark evolution, and
shark and ray taxonomy. Although some of the
content has become quite technical in nature, the site remains geared to
the general public. Each new section that is added generates more
questions leading to further expansion. This approach is ideally suited to
the organic nature of the internet.
Hopefully, in the future Elasmodiver will include a database of extinct elasmobranch
species, a forum for the discussion of all things shark and ray related,
and of course, many new pictures of shark species.

Frustrated with the limited information available on where to find sharks
and rays around the world, Andy created Elasmodiver to share the knowledge
that he has collected. He remains the creative force behind the project.
As well as an
elasmobranch information portal, Elasmodiver contains a huge selection of
shark and ray pictures in the
Shark Pictures Database. The images in the Shark Pictures Database are available
for commercial licensing and regularly appear in books and magazines,
public aquarium displays, games, scientific journals, and more.
