Triggerfish Reflections

THAILAND. Similan Islands National Marine Park, Phangna Province. Novmber 29th, 2011. Many dive boats don’t realize the impact they have on the marine environment when they discard food waste into the sea. Along with the Rabbitfish and Sergeant Majors, the local Titan Triggerfish have become habituated to discarded food waste, becoming very excited and often acting aggressively towards divers and snorkelers.
