Caption: Chevron barracuda. School of chevron barracuda (Sphyraena putnamiae). These are gregarious fish which inhabit tropical seas in the eastern Pacific and Indian Oceans. They may reach a length of over a metre, and are fast and voracious predators. Their main prey is other fish, although squid are also taken. Larger fish are cut up by their powerful teeth and jaws before being eaten. They are known to congregate in schools of thousands of individuals. They spend most of their time in quite deep water, down to depths of around 80 metres. Photographed off New Ireland, Papua New Guinea.
