Jacks (Carangidae) - My Hawaiian Images

One of the wonderful things about diving marine preserves (we need more of them!) like Molokini Islet is that you can see species that have become rare due to overfishing and environmental pressures elsewhere. Sometimes those species are rather large. This is a Giant trevally (Carnax ignobilis), or "Ulua aukea" here in the Islands. This one is just about a meter long...but they get quite a bit bigger than that. We were investigated by several on this dive, a great experience...
