The most pristine reefs are generally bathed by strong currents, bringing a continuous flow of fresh nutrients. Corals are able to flourish, and marine creatures are plentiful, lured by the abundance of food and the shelter provided by healthy corals. Predators are attracted by the bounty of prey offered and thus jacks, barracuda, tuna and best of allā¦sharks all patrol the reefs in search of a meal.

Resisting the temptation to turn off their air, you swim for a clearing and spend the rest of your day cursing the staff and divers of KDC.
