Curtain of Fish

The Coral Triangle is not only about the coral reef. The area is also teeming with fish. In some areas, you see layers of “fish curtains.”


New Year, new dive trip planning. We will be heading back to the Coral Triangle in 2020 and 2021. I’m already dreaming of the colorful coral reef teeming with life.

Power of Teamwork!

As I watched this school of porkfish (Anisotremus virginicus) gracefullly drifting at Sea of Cortez, I thought about how they can feel safer by forming a school. The tightly packed group move in unison and look like a much larger animal. Power of teamwork!

A Porkfish has bright yellow body with blue stripes. At first glance it can look like a blue striped snapper until you notice the blunt snout and the black bars on the head and the front part of the body. The name comes from the pig like grunting noise it makes.
