Western King Wrasse

I captured this shot on my first dive some years ago, on the wreck of the Key Biscayne, a floating oil rig which sank in a storm in 1983 off the coast of WA near Lancelin. The Western King Wrasse is often seen off the coast along the west of Western Australia and is not found anywhere else, although there are closely related species in New South Wales. This specimen was around 30 centimetres in length.

  1. I'm always amazed by the colour you manage to capture way below the surface of the sea!
