Sharks Hunting Tuna at Roca Partida

Recommended Posts

Last month I did a great trip to the Revillagigedos (Socorro Islands) and Clipperton Island aboard the Nautilus Explorer. On a late afternoon dive at Roca Partida it was clearly dinnertime as the big fish started striking the small ones. First the Sharks came in, then the Wahoo, then big Yellowfin tuna, and finally Dolphins. Here is a photo from the beginning of the feeding frenzy with Galapagos and Dusky sharks pursuing a big school of tuna. Awesome.

Sounds like a really cool dive. BTW, those look like bonitos, which are a relative of the tuna, but are not tuna.

You may be right about the fish id. I am certainly no expert. I thought they were skipjack tuna.
