World Heritage Site New Caledonia Lagoon Coral Reef Batfish Platax Teira - Royalty free image C79242

About 40 km southeast of Noumea Ilot Mato Anchorage marks the entrance into the vast southern coral reef lagoon. Part of the New Caledonia World Heritage Site the southern lagoon is a vast area of coral reefs and isolated small islands.The corals are vibrantly alive and teem with brilliantly colored coral fish. A school of batfish Platax teira milled around as I took this underwater panoramic sphere photo. In areas of the New Caledonia Lagoon World Heritage Site that are totally protected against any kind of fishing the fish are often very tame and allow a photographer to get images that are impossible to obtain just about anywhere else. Unfortunately this part of the reef is still open to fishing - even spearfishing and tropical fish collecting - so the fish tend to move off quickly when a diver comes by.  - Royalty free image Richard Chesher (360Cities)
