Bumphead Parrotfish Spawning - (Bolbometepon muricatum)


All of the pictures in this album were taken in the Republic of Palau.This is to date the biggest spawning aggregation of bumphead parrotfish discovered on the planet. I have been leading expeditions for photographers and non photographers here for the last four years to witness this amazing spectacle with Sam's Tours Unique Dive Expeditions, and most recently aboard the Palau Siren. We estimate that there can be over one thousand individuals here aggregating every month to spawn.
