Huon Aquaculture Group Ltd, Australia's second-largest salmon farmer, said it plans to raise A$133 million ($117 million) in a sharemarket listing in a bid to boost its share of the country's fastest growing marine farming sector. The IPO makes Huon the southern state's - and Australia's - second listed salmon farmer after larger Tassal Group Ltd, which has been growing earnings since it decided to cut exports and focus on the strong domestic market.

A diver swims near the command bridge of the wreck of the Baron Gautsch ship, near the Adriatic town of Rovinj June 22, 2014. The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Baron Gautsch, an Austro-Hungarian steamboat which sank in the northern Croatian Adriatic sea, will be marked on August 13, 2014. The ship, originally used to service passenger lines, had been leased by the Austro-Hungarian Army following the July 1914 outbreak of World War One to transport troops, only to run into a friendly minefield off the Brijuni islands less than a month later. Estimates say between 240 and 390 people perished in the sinking, making it one of the biggest losses of life in World War One. Today the shipwreck lies at a depth of 40 metres off the coast of Rovinj and is said to be the most popular site for divers in the Adriatic. Picture taken June 22, 2014.

A diver illuminates a gun on the deck of SMS Coln, a German WWI warship at Scapa Flow in the Orkney Islands, Scotland May 8, 2014. During both World Wars, Scapa Flow was an important British naval base, and the site of significant loss of life. Following the end of World War One, 74 German warships were interned there, and on June 21, 1919 most were deliberately sunk, or scuttled, at the orders of German Rear Admiral Ludwig Von Reuter, who mistakenly thought that the Armistice had broken down and wanted to prevent the British from using the ships. Now Scapa Flow is a popular site for divers, who explore the few wrecks that still remain at the bottom. The year 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Cu Camara's job involves diving in the city's sewage system to clear blockages and repair infrastructure, on an average of four times a month, for about 30 minutes to six hours depending on the amount of work needed. Cu Camara, who started working as a sewer diver 30 years ago, uses a diving suit and helmet that weigh more than 40 kg to protect him during his dives. During his working experience, he has found dead humans, horses, weapons and car parts among other things. Mexico City has a drainage system which measures more than 7,456 miles (12,014 km) long.

A scuba diver swims near a whale shark as it approaches a paddleboat off the beach of Tan-awan, Oslob, in the southern Philippines island of Cebu, March 1 2013. Tan-awan, in the southern Philippines island of Cebu, used to be a sleepy village that never saw tourists unless they were lost or in transit. Yet now they flock there by the hundreds - to swim with whale sharks, the world's largest fish. Whale sharks are lured to the Tan-awan coastline of the Oslob district by fishermen who hand feed them small shrimp, drawing divers and snorkelers to see the highly sought-after animals, known as gentle giants of the sea. But the practice has sparked fierce debate on the internet and among biologists, who decry it as unnatural. Picture taken March 1, 2013.

Scuba diver visits La Cueva de los Peces along coast of Playa Giron
A scuba diver visits La Cueva de los Peces (Cave of the Fish) along the coast of Playa Giron, near the Bay of Pigs, 160 km (100 miles) south-east of Havana, in central Cuba January 24, 2012. The Arab Spring, changes in U.S. policy and economic reforms at home are driving a tourist rush that is giving communist-run Cuba one of its best seasons ever and stretching its ability to accommodate demand. Cuba just completed its best year for tourism with 2.7 million visitors in 2011, and experts say current bookings suggest it will almost certainly beat that number in 2012.

A scuba diver takes a picture as a four meter giant manta ray swims just outside Hanifaru Bay of Maldives' remote Baa Atoll, August 11, 2011. Every year, hundreds of whale sharks and giant manta rays gather for their annual feeding frenzy of plankton in July and August, in the geologically unique Hanifaru Bay. For reasons of conservation, Maldives is likely to shut down Hanifaru Bay to divers, making this the last season divers can see this one-of-a-kind phenomenon.

Diver Tin Aung Lwin wears a primitive mask as he climbs up on the boat after diving in Yangon river in search of coal from a sunken ship June 8, 2011. Every morning and every evening when the tide is high, up to 40 boats of different shapes and sizes with crews of between four to eight people leave the former capital for the dangerous work of salvaging coal from the muddy waters of Yangon River. With flimsy-looking masks costing about $8 to $9 and attached to ropes commonly used at homes, the divers jumped into the water in search of coal from sunken ships. It's a tiring and lethal job - some divers lost their lives when their ropes break or when they get caught up in fishing nets and hooks. The divers say they earn a minimum of about 150,000 kyats a month (about $200) - in a country where rights groups say a third of the population live below the poverty line - this is a considered a good wage.
