Artist's Description

This image of a Maori wrasse (Cheilinus undulatus) in silhouette was taken at the Yongala ship wreck near Townsville in North Queensland. The wreck is regularly visited by a wide variety of reef fish, sharks and turtles to name but a few. It is regularly cited as one of the world’s best dive sites and having seen a whale shark there a couple of years ago I can only agree.

Maori wrasse are mainly found in coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific region. They are also commonly known as the humphead wrasse, Napoleon wrasse, Napoleonfish. Sadly the large lips of these amazing and beautiful fish are considered to be a delicacy in some parts of the world which has lead to extreme overfishing. Leading to this becoming yet another name on the ever growing IUCN endangered species red list…….. :(
