Spiny devil fish spotted beside disposable mask

A well-camouflaged Spiny devilfish, scientific name Inimicus didactylus (bottom left) was spotted by divemaster trainee John Kenneth Gines beside a disposable facemask during a dive in Janao Bay, Mabini, Batangas on Sunday. Marine conservation advocates encourage the public to opt for reusable face masks as protection against COVID-19 as the improper disposal of single-use facemasks and other PPEs add up to the already mounting plastic debris found underwater.
