Want to see some Caranx latus and Carcharhinus perezii?! Check out my Bahamas video!

Translation: If you want to see some Horse-Eye Jacks and Caribbean reef sharks (and countless other aquatic Caribbean species), watch my video from Gates Fest in the Exuma Islands, Bahamas.

Of course I couldn't resist recording which fish species are represented in the video. Just in case you're curious, here's a list: Bermuda chub (Kyphosus sectatrix), Yellowtail snapper (Ocyurus chrysurus), Caribbean reef shark (Carcharhinus perezii) / Blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus), Horse eye jack (Caranx latus), Nassau grouper (Epinephelus striatus), Remora (Remora remora), Grey angelfish (Pomacanthus arcuatus), Tiger grouper (Mycteroperca tigris), Blue Chromis (Chromis cyanea), Greater Barracuda (Sphyraena barracuda), Bar Jack (Caranx ruber), Lionfish (Pterois volitans).

Other highlights from the trip include Hawksbill sea turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata), Eagle Rays (Aetobatus narinari), Nurse sharks (Ginglymostoma cirratum), Queen triggerfish (Balistes vetula), etc, etc.. There are far too many more to name because I get excited to see any fish :) Can't wait to make it back out to the ocean.

Here is a full synopsis of the trip...
