Giant Trevally Fish

This is probably the largest fish I have come in close contact with. Although looking down on him from the boat was close enough for me. The Gaint Trevally or GT for short is a large marine fish found throughout the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. It can grow to over a metre and a half in length and a weight of up to 80kg. This photograph was taken in the Aitutaki lagoon. There were at least three or four GTs. Nearly everyone on the boat went snorkelling in the water with them but I wanted to focus on photographing them. That’s my excuse for staying out of the water anyway!
