MOLA MOLA CODE OF CONDUCT
The following Code of Conduct or Best Practice for Recreational Divers in Lembongan/Penida, Bali was established in consultation with leading sunfish experts, scientific researchers, experienced local marine managers, industry representatives and dive guides operating in the area for over 15 years. These guidelines are designed to provide a satisfying and safe diving experience while insuring the lowest sustainable impact on the sunfish population of Bali.
These guidelines, while written for Bali, are applicable to any area where large numbers of divers are interacting with Mola mola at cleaning stations. The aim of developing the Code of Conduct for sunfish interactions is to ensure sunfish are able to settle onto cleaning stations without being disturbed. The removal of parasites at the cleaning stations is critical to the health of the molas. Once settled, the sunfish can remain on station for longer periods, offering better quality interactions for divers.
We encourage wide dissemination of these guidelines by all such dive operations.
