Giant Triggerfish parenting behavior

I’m very happy that i was able to shoot some pretty good footage of a Giant Triggerfish letting me come very close to watch its parenting behavior. After spawning, both the male and female participate in caring for the fertilized eggs (biparental egg care). A female triggerfish stays near the spawning ground, around 5 meters off the bottom, and guards the eggs within her territory against intruders. Besides guarding, females will roll, fan, and blow water on eggs to provide oxygen to the embryo, thereby inducing hatching. This behavior of female triggerfish is called ‘tending,’ and males rarely perform this behavior.

Huge Abandoned Fishing-Net removal at Koh Haa Local Islands on 15.05.2016. We had to bring the Net on Board of PDC1 to cut out a few still alive crabs. It was too difficult to do that underwater!
