Whale shark and pilot fish Featured Marine Life Print

Whale shark and pilot fish

Whale shark (Rhincodon typus) about to eat a pilot fish (Naucrates ductor). The whale shark is the largest fish in the world, growing up to 18 metres in length. This harmless, solitary animal is found in tropical and warm waters throughout the world, except the Mediterranean. It is a filter feeder, straining plankton and small organisms from the water. It generates its own suction rather than relying on its forward motion and schooling fish may be eaten at times. The pilot fish is a scavenger well know for its habit of accompanying ships and large fish, especially sharks, in warm waters. Photographed in the Red Sea, Egypt

Jellyfish Featured Marine Life Print

Jellyfish

Jellyfish (Pelagia noctiluca). This jellyfish is found in the open ocean. The bowl-shaped bell has clumps of stinging cells (nematocysts), also seen on its tentacles. As with all jellyfish, these are used to subdue prey such as fish, crustaceans or plankton. The prey is then brought to its mouth at the centre of the underside of the bell. Jellyfish are free-swimming aquatic invertebrates that are related to the sea anemones and corals. Jellyfish swim by contractions of their bell. P. noctiluca is observed to glow in the dark (phosphorescence). Its bell can reach up to 60 centimetres across. Photographed off Levant Island, France, in the north-western Mediterranean Sea

Sea goldie fish over coral Featured Marine Life Print

Sea goldie fish over coral

Sea goldie fish (Pseudanthias squamipinnis) over a hard coral. This fish is found around coral reefs throughout the tropical Indo-Pacific region, from eastern Africa to the western Pacific. It forms large shoals around reef edges, feeding on zooplankton. Shoals are led by one dominant male, who is territorial and guards his harem of females. The sea goldie is a protogynous hermaphrodite: all the fish start life female, then when the dominant male dies the largest female turns into the new dominant male. Males are around twice the length of females, around 15 centimetres compared to seven. Photographed in the Egyptian Red Sea
