Small-Scale Bullseye

Bullseyes are very common on the reefs around Perth and they congregate in large shoals. When approached by divers they part like curtains and close up again when you have passed. They tend to form groups in the five metres directly above the reefs and they measure 15 - 20 centimetres in length.

  1. Lovely silvery blue colour, and that eye is huge, not going to miss a thing with that! Would be a surreal experience to swim through a shoal of these fish!
