Diver and Tarpon

These large tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) often hang about watching divers. They are large fish, and look fearsome, but they are harmless and give way if challenged. Widely known as a spirited game fish, it's not unusual to see one with a hook embedded in a lip, or scars from a past battle. (I have removed much of the colour in this image...)
