f006124: A peer-group of young giant boarfish found hang-gliding
in the rising current at 20m depth in the Goat Island marine reserve, New
Zealand. Giant boarfish (Paristiopterus labiosus) live over the
continental shelf and can grow to 1m. When young, they form small peer
groups but adult males and females pair up for life. The odd-ball out is
a young Tarakihi (Nemadactylus macropterus), who, having a similar
black mark and long fins, has mistakenly identified itself as one of them.
f021026: A school of large jack mackerels found resting in
the shelter of Goat Island, New Zealand. Jack mackerels (Trachurus declivus)
are schooling fish, living in the open sea and near the shore. They swim
fast and are hunted by many predators.
