170. Blackfin Snapper (Lutjanus buccanella)

Subject: Although this snapper has yellow fins, its common name is Blackfin Snapper (Lutjanus buccanella). They usually occur at depths greater than 200ft/60m and are not very shy.

Technique: This shot was taken underneath an overhang where less sunlight is present and this might explain why this fish was spotted in relatively shallow water (45ft/15m). The pink and yellow colours in this clip have been saturated to highlight the beautiful colours of this fish.
