Kingfish at Ned's Beach, Lord Howe Island

Erik Schlogl

Randwick, Australia

Artist's Description

Kingfish (Seriola lalandi), Ned’s Beach, Lord Howe Island, Australia. Image taken while snorkeling.

Large areas around Lord Howe Island are totally protected from fishing, so there is a proliferation of large fishes – and the fishing is consequently very good in those areas where it is allowed. The fish in this image must have been well over a meter long, one of a resident population of Kingfish at Ned’s Beach (no fishing!), where the fishes are fed regularly and are therefore a lot less shy.

Nikon D300, Nikkor 24 mm, ISO 200 in RAW, f/9 at 1/640 sec, Seacam housing.
