Is it true it helps to feed the fish dog bisquits? I've noticed I see many more fish when I go off by myself and just float over a reef without kicking my fins, and scaring the fish. Any other tips on how to atttact more fish would be helpful as well as what do do if I run into a barracuda mori eel, or jelly fish would be apresheated.
I used to take a can of CheezeWhiz with me when I went snorkeling. You can tuck the can down the top of you swimsuit when getting to the spot where you want to snorkel, and then squirt away! The cheese was loved by many fish, including a barracuda! I did find that the pointed end of the can made a nice weapon to poke at that fish! Away he went!
I have heard about dog biscuits, too. I have also heard that you shouldn't feed the fish.
I have been told that you should not feed the fish in the wild any kind of "domestic food", they are wild creatures and need to be able to find their own food.
If you just gently swim along and don't disturb the water too much you will see more marine life.
If you don't bother them, they won't bother you.
Jellyfish float with the currents, they don't attack you, you swim into them, be aware and avoid.
Generally you do not want to feed fish in the wild. Brings too many too close and spoils the natural habitat. Barricuda will generally leave you alone and are as wary of you as you are of them. Don't approach , if you see one move slowly away. The moray eel will generally only bother you if you stick you hand into or under the rocks where he lives. You should not be sticking your hand into or under the rocks anyway.
