Here is a clip of Bumphead Parrotfish spawning in Palau in February 2013.

It's one of those things that very few people will get to witness. It starts out with and aggregation of hundreds (maybe even a thousand) and culminates in an orgy.

Unfortunately it was about 6am on an overcast day so the quality leaves a bit to be desired.

Hi Swink


The video showed plenty. Good job. 


I am bringing a group to see the Bumpheads aggregation this Dec/Jan14. Hoping to catch something like this. 


thanks for showing this.
