The coral trout is a prized eating delicacy in seafood restaurants all over the world. This one is in its natural environment on a coral reef. I love the electric blue spots and red camouflage patterns on these guys. Tuely on of the most spectacular species to be seen on the coral reef.

Stephen Colquitt is a photographer from Melbourne, Australia. He loves travel, and has a real passion for underwater photography.

    Great shot Stephen! Can’t believe people eat these things… I bet they haven’t seen photos of them in the wild. The lighting is perfect in this one!
