Yellowtail and Friends

The very first time I dived Rapid Bay Jetty, more than thirty years ago now, I was blown away by the schools of pelagic fish that swim through the pylons.

Thirty years ago they were probably yellowfin whiting, today they are definitely yellowfin whiting.

What I did not see all those years ago was the school of salmon you see in the upper reaches of the pylon forest. They were a first for me on this dive. Perhaps the salmon have accompanied many of my dives, perhaps I just never looked up!

Today on this dive the yellowtail whiting and friends simply made my day! Thank you.
