Schooling barracuda

Dr Ben Crossett , April 2013

Schooling barracuda at Bradford Shoal in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea. Kimbe Bay, on the north coast of New Britain Island, is a remote but stunningly beautiful location. Home to exceptional biodiversity above and below the sea, it is a privilege to have travelled and SCUBA dived there. Bradford Shoal is an isolated seamount about 12km off shore. It rises almost vertically from the sea floor to a depth of about 25 m, as we were finishing our dive, we were entertained by a large school of barracuda.
