Wrecks offer a plethora of feeding opportunity for both ‘bentho-pelagic’ and ‘pelagic’ fishes which inhabit these structures. Primary production of green algae, the plankton, aided by increased light intensity due to the raised nature of the ‘artificial seabed’ (the wreck) ~ coupled with nutrient rich and often oxygen laden waters, ‘fertilised’ with particulate organic matter channelling out from the rivers of Borneo – fuels the self perpetuating growth of marine algae. This in turn attracts ‘zoo-plankton’ which support the ‘frenetic feasting’ of the fishes. Almost like a finely tuned ‘ferrari’ ~ there are mechanics or mechanisms at play here. The wrecks are the “lean green wreckage machines” of the ocean…

As a Marine Scientist, Underwater Photographer, Wildlife Conservation FilmMaker & emerging Explorer ~ Nicks’ recent film “Colours of the Gulf” documented the plight of whale sharks and other marine life in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.
