Whale Shark & Travallies

whale shark mafia island

A whale shark (Rhincodon typus) coasts along Tanzanian waters with a large school of golden trevallies (Gnathanodon speciosus). Golden travallies often congregate and follow whale sharks (which feed on zoo-plankton) for protection from predation of other fish. Photographed off the coast of Mafia Island.
