Alex Mustard - A New Home

 

A pair of bar jacks (Caranx ruber) hunting silversides (Atherinidae) inside the wreck of the USS Kittiwake. The Kittiwake, a US Military submarine rescue vessel, was sunk in 2011. Marine life quickly moved in. This picture was taken 3 years later, with both fish and invertebrateĀ life already calling the wreck home.


Location: Kittiwake Wreck, Cayman Islands

    Great photo! The bar jack can eat up to 7% of its body weight per day. Doesn't look good for those silversides!
