Who needs to go to the Great Barrier Reef……?

………When the East Australian Current (EAC) brings fish from there to Manly. This beautiful adult Clown triggerfish has been hanging around Fairy Bower (towards Manly) for several weeks now and I finally found it today.

Normally found in much warmer waters it is a very rare visitor indeed, the last one caught by a spearfisher only a couple of years ago.

There were dozens of dusky whalers cruising around too

And…..some swimmers described to me a fish that sounded very like a colourful pink and yellow dottyback – need to look for that one again

  1. My favourite triggerfish! (But don’t tell the juvenile half-moon trigger I saw at Bare Island today …haven’t seen one in Botany Bay before)
