Lin travels to the island of Kuredu in the Maldives to experience a premier diving destination and investigates how the Maldives is handling the large amount of tourism to the area in a sustainable way.
Lin takes the audience on an underwater adventure seeing why this location attracts millions of tourists a year. She meet sharks, rays and schools of pelagic fish but notices that the coral life is not as affluent as in many other healthy reef systems she has visited.
Relying on leading scientists she uncovers that the Maldives was affected many years ago by a mass coral bleaching event and still today is slowly recovering. To find out why areas can be fast or slow to regenerate she raises the questions and highlights the need for reef management to be highly regarded in areas which rely heavily on tourism.
Lin also digs deep into the fishing industry to find out hot it is one of the leading Tuna industries in sustainability and talk to the locals about how they feel that their industry is a bench mark and other tuna industries around the world should follow suit in the practice of pole and line Tuna fishing instead of purse seining which is quickly removing Tuna from our seas.
